Currently we are programmatically adding values, labels to a chartseries within a Telerik Report.
For each item within the series, we would like to set the Item's MainColor and FillType.

Adding values and labels to ChartSeries
...ChartSeries cs = new Telerik.Reporting.Charting.ChartSeries();
Hashtable ht = ....;
double total = 0;
            foreach (DictionaryEntry de in ht)
                total += (double)de.Value;
            foreach (DictionaryEntry de in ht)
            {
               cs.AddItem((double)de.Value, (String)de.Key + " " + ((double)de.Value / total).ToString("P02"));
            }

The following is where we have problems. For each of the above items, we would like to set the item's color and Filltype:
 
int dcount = 0;
            foreach (DictionaryEntry de in ht)
            {
                cs.Items[dcount].Appearance.FillStyle.FillType = Telerik.Reporting.Charting.Styles.FillType.Solid;
                cs.Items[dcount].Appearance.FillStyle.MainColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(14, 55, 147);
                dcount = +1;
            }

For some reason ,however, not all the items get the above color when rendering the report (it typically works fine for the first few items). 

Not sure how to proceed.

Hi Mark Holdt,

The sporadic coloring that you report is very weird and we have not been able to reproduce it in our local tests. Please take a look at the following forum post that contains more info and sample code that is working fine on our end and let us know what differs on your end.

All the best,
Steve
