I am trying to create a pointseries with the points having a custom color in codebehind. Is there a simple way to do this?

 

As far as I understand, the only way to set the color of a pointseries is to use a custom pointtemplate, and pointtemplates can only easily be created in XAML, in code behind I would have to create the xaml as a string and then convert it into a datatemplate or something. But that seems like a lot of complexity for something as simple as setting the color of a chart.

I cannot define everything in XAML because series are created on the go and the colors can vary depending on settings.

Hello Gitle,

To achieve your requirement you can use also the DefaultVisualStyle or the DefaultVisualStyleSelector properties of the series. They are easier to adjust in code-behind because expect a value of type Style or a StyleSelector. In your case the selector should do the work. Can you please try those and let me know how it goes?
