When I created stacked bars chars the legend is always reverse to what the order of the stacked bars are.  Is there any way to achieve the legend matching to colors of the stacked bar?

Hello Travis,

This is the expected behavior as the bars are stacked from the bottom towards the top, while the legend items are added top to bottom. You can wire BeforeLayout event of the chart and reorder the RadChart.Legend.Items collection.


All the best,

Here is a code snippet if anyone else runs across this.

    Protected Sub reverseLegend(ByRef collection As Telerik.Charting.ChartLabelsCollection) 
        Dim temp(collection.Count - 1) As Telerik.Charting.LabelItem 
        Dim i As Integer 
        Dim count As Integer = 0 
        For i = collection.Count - 1 To 0 Step -1 
            temp(count) = collection(i) 
            count += 1 
        Next 
        collection.Clear() 
        collection.AddRange(temp) 
    End Sub

Thanks for providing the solution, Travis. This "expected behaviour" excuse just seems like a cover-up for sloppy design. Who in their right mind would want a legend ordered opposite to the many items in a stacked bar chart?
