Hi,

I have a line chart to show two data series, I use two line types but the legend is not synced with the series dash type.


function GetSeries() {
		return [{
			name: chartTerms[68941],
			type: "line",
			dashType: "dot",
			field: "Benchmark",
			color: chartColors["LightPurple"],
			markers: {
				visible: false
			},
		},
		{
			name: chartTerms[7151],
			type: "line",
			field: "Result",
			color: chartColors["DarkPurple"],
			markers: {
				visible: false
			},
		}]
	}

what I see is:

The Benchmark legend is not correct, it should be "dot"

Any idea?

Hi, Fahime,

Thank you for the provided snippet.

I'm assuming you're talking about the colored rectangle elements?

The legend items are not related to the type of the series. It doesn't matter if it's a line series or column series, or dot series, the items in the legend will always be rectangles, this is how the chart is intended to work.

You can use the legend.item.visual to draw a custom shapes instead of the default one.
