    I am having problem with Legend when I have item (series) more than 5 then it will repeat from the first color. I am using the multi series which generated dynamically so I can't set the specific color each series.

    series1: Red
    series2: Blue
    series6: Red

    it makes the chart messy and can't be understood as the color are same.

    I appreciate your comments and advice. Thanks.

    Hello Tony,

    Thank you for contacting the Telerik's support team.

    The reason for this behavior is because the RadHtmlChart uses 5 predefined colors for the series, i.e. if you use more than 5 series in a single chart, their colors will start to repeat themselves. However, we have worked on adding 5 more colors for each skin and this improvement will be available in our next Service Pack. If you are too eager to get them, you can find the new colors in our Latest Internal Build.

    I got  your meanings that it provides only 5 pre-defined colors. It would be great if you could provide an unlimited color, not just 10 or 15 color such what MS excel does. Actually, I can do it by grammatically generate now.

    Thanks for your answer though.
