Hi,

I am new to RAD controls. I am using RadChart control and facing one problem.

I am having one chart control of type pie on the form with only one series containing 4 items. I want to show four legends at the right side with same color as that of each item in the chart. Legend color should be associated with series item.

can somebody help me on this?
also how to change color of particular item in the series? This changed color should reflect to associated series item.

please treat this as urgent.

Thanks and regards,
Prabodh

Hi Prabodh,

Here is a sample code:
// Change the legend display mode of the first series: 
this.radChart1.Series[0].Appearance.LegendDisplayMode = Telerik.Charting.ChartSeriesLegendDisplayMode.ItemLabels; 
 
// Change the appearance of the first item in the first series: 
this.radChart1.Series[0][0].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Color.Red; 
this.radChart1.Series[0][0].Appearance.FillStyle.SecondColor = Color.DarkRed;

Thanks Evtim,

I got it worked now.

One more question.  Legends are appearing on the pie chart itself. I mean inside the box that appears around the graph. 

Can I move it outside that box?

Thanks and regards,
Prabodh

Hi Prabodh,

Unfortunately, the legend is part of the RadChart and cannot be moved outside.

All the best,
