Hi,
I'm trying to change the color of the border of the sectors in this pie chart from the light-blue it seems to be defaulting to.
How do I access the property to make the change?

Hi Adrian,

Try setting Appearance-Border-Color property of ChartSeries to achieve your scenario.

ASPX:
<telerik:RadChart ID="RadChart1" runat="server" SkinsOverrideStyles="true" Width="600px">
    ..........
  <Series>
    <telerik:ChartSeries Name="Series 1" Type="Pie" Appearance-Border-Color="Red">
       <Items>
         ...........
       </Items>
    </telerik:ChartSeries>
  </Series>
</telerik:RadChart>

Hope this help.

Regards,
Princy.

Thanks it worked. Just as a follow up, I also need to change the fill type on the pie sectors which are all defaulted to gradient, but I need them to be solid.  The code I'm trying is this:

 Protected Sub ConfigureChart(ByVal dt As DataTable, ByVal thechart As Telerik.Web.UI.RadChart, ByVal x_colname As String, ByVal y_colname As String)
        Dim chartseries As New ChartSeries
        chartseries.Type = ChartSeriesType.Pie
        
        chartseries.Appearance.Border.Color = Drawing.Color.White
        
        For Each item In chartseries.Items
            item.Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = Drawing.Color.Lime
            item.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Styles.FillType.Solid
            
        Next
                    
        chartseries.DataLabelsColumn = x_colname
        chartseries.DataYColumn = y_colname
        chartseries.Appearance.LegendDisplayMode = ChartSeriesLegendDisplayMode.ItemLabels
        'chartseries.Appearance.ShowLabelConnectors = True
        chartseries.Appearance.ShowLabels = False
                
        thechart.Series.Add(chartseries)
        
        thechart.Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Styles.FillType.Solid
        thechart.DataSource = dt
        thechart.DataBind()
        
        
    End Sub

Hi Adrian,

You may need to use SkinsOverrideStyles=false, so that you can your own settings are getting applied (the default skin will not override them). If this is not of help to you, could you prepare a small project that we can use to inspect what's preventing the settings to be applied on our side?
