Hi,

Can I style the bar chart so it looks like the charts in Excel 2007?
I have attached a small screenshot with some Excel chart bars.

Thanks,
Danny

Hello Danny Scheelings,

 You can change the look of your series by creating your custom style and applying it on the series. How to do this is explained in our documentation here.
Another approach could be to use MVVM and apply your own ControlTemplate over the series. This approach is demonstrated in our demos here.

Hi Yavor,

Thanks for the links. Things are more clear to me now!

Do you perhaps know how to draw a bar like the attached example? I am not that familiar in designing with Silverlight!

Thanks,
Danny

Hi Danny Scheelings,

 You can accomplish the desired effect through retemplating the series like in the MVVM demo and use it in your project. Check out Expression Blend for creating custom templates for Silverlight. Hope this helps.
