I'm trying to style my Y-Axis striplines (eventually to be bound), but I can't seem to do so correctly. Declaritvely, I can set a single chart's ChartArea.AxisY.StripLinesVisibility to Collapsed, but everything I have tried makes it seem as if these guys were impervious to styles. So basically: how to:
  * Declare the style correctly in XAML
  * Set the style correctly in C#, at the time of Chart creation (I must do it like this, as the charts are created at run time)

Currently, I have in my XAML:
<UserControl.Resources> 
    <Style TargetType="Rectangle" x:Key="StripLinesYStyle
      <Setter Property="Visibility" Value="Collapsed" /> 
    </Style> 
</UserControl.Resources> 

and where I'm creating the chart I have

var stripLineStyle = this.Resources["StripLinesYStyle"as Style; 
myChart.DefaultView.ChartArea.AxisY.AxisStyles.StripLineStyle = stripLineStyle;

Hello Adam Petaccia,

You need to have the following styles in the Resources of your application:
<Style x:Key="HorizontalStripLineStyle" TargetType="Rectangle" >
     <Setter Property="Fill" Value="Red" />
</Style>
<Style x:Key="VerticalStripLineStyle" TargetType="Rectangle" >
     <Setter Property="Fill" Value="Blue" />
</Style>

and apply them in your code-behind by having:
RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartArea.AxisX.AxisStyles.AlternateStripLineStyle = this.Resources["HorizontalStripLineStyle"] as Style;
RadChart1.DefaultView.ChartArea.AxisY.AxisStyles.AlternateStripLineStyle = this.Resources["VerticalStripLineStyle"] as Style;

As I see the only difference is that you are trying to change the StripLineStyle not the AtlernateStripLineStyle. By default the second one is set and you cannot overwrite it by setting the first one.

If you still experience problems, just let us know.
