The colors of the Angular Chart are derived from the active Kendo UI theme. It is possible to customize them through the theme variables and the configuration.

Setting the Dimensions

By default, the Angular Chart is 400px high and as wide as its container. To set the dimensions of the Chart, use inline styles or CSS.

Using Series Color from Themes v4

The 5.0 release of the Kendo Themes features an updated color palette for the chart series.

To revert to the series colors from version 4.x, you can:

  • Use the default-dataviz-v4, bootstrap-dataviz-v4 or material-dataviz-v4 swatches.

    import '@progress/kendo-theme-default/dist/default-dataviz-v4.css';
    // or
    import '@progress/kendo-theme-bootstrap/dist/bootstrap-dataviz-v4.css';
    // or
    import '@progress/kendo-theme-material/dist/material-dataviz-v4.css';
  • Use SCSS variables to revert the series colors to their previous defaults:

    • kendo-theme-default:
    // Default v4
    $series-a: #ff6358;
    $series-b: #ffd246;
    $series-c: #78d237;
    $series-d: #28b4c8;
    $series-e: #2d73f5;
    $series-f: #aa46be;
    @import "all.scss";
    • kendo-theme-bootstrap:
    // Bootstrap v4
    $series-a: #0275d8;
    $series-b: #5bc0de;
    $series-c: #5cb85c;
    $series-d: #f0ad4e;
    $series-e: #e67d4a;
    $series-f: #d9534f;
    @import "all.scss";
    • kendo-theme-material:
    // Material v4
    $series-a: #3f51b5;
    $series-b: #2196f3;
    $series-c: #43a047;
    $series-d: #ffc107;
    $series-e: #ff5722;
    $series-f: #e91e63;
    @import "all.scss";
