    I noticed that the pie chart has only 5 different colors for the different pie slices. Meaning if I have more than 5 items showing in my chart, colors will get repeated (I tried a few skins, but didn't try them all).

    I can of course try to make code that will add the items individually and set the color myself, but I would rather have this just work straight out of the box. Is there a simple way to have more than 5 colors? Did i miss anything?

    Hi Ramaka,

    The current version of the RadHtmlChart provides exactly 5 colors for the series and as you mentioned the way to use other s is to set the color of the corresponding series items. We are currently working on adding additional 5 colors and they might be introduced in one of our next releases.

    There is also an item in our public issue tracker  where you can vote for this feature and as more and more clients do this we will raise the priority of this task and provide it to you as soon as possible.

    The following resources can help you in using the desired colors for your charts:
