Okay, guys I've read every post on changing pie colors, and this question seems to come up a lot.

I created my Pie template, bound the Fill property of the Ellipse, and it DID change the pie wedge colors.  BUT then the legend still showed the original colors and chart was thus unusable!

Now, mind you, the thing I'm binding my charts to is a datatype returned from a webservice.  So, since you require me to do the colors in this way, I have to to either modify my webservice or add code to the generated webservice proxy classes (or copy all the data into new objects).  This is completely outrageous for such a common and simple thing as changing graph colors.  I'm really starting to get frustrated with trying to customize the RadChart.  I did not have these problems with ILOG Elixir.

One approach (from Adobe Flex) I've seen before is to accept an ARRAY of colors for a pie chart.  That way the pie chart just uses the colors in order.  If no array is provided the chart makes up its own colors.  If the array is too small the chart makes up colors as needed. 

Please add this as a feature request.

Thank you,

Derrick

Hi,

Is this option available in the Q3 2009 or the Q1 2010 release?
Because I do have the same issue as derrick and am also working with webservices.

So far i was able to change the color of each slice of the piechart, but the legenditems do not change color!

Kind regards,

Gertjan
