Is it possible to set opacity on bars/areas?

Recommended Posts

We are creating some chart reports in Reporting Services. One of the requirements is for a multi series bar/area chart, and we want the area series to be first but be able to see through it to the bar series behind it. Haven't been able to figure out how to do this yet, is this possible?

Hi, 

Please note that you can pass a fouth parameter when specifying the series color. Take a look at the following sample:

chart1.Series[0].Color = Color.FromArgb(50, 255, 200, 100);

The first parameter refers to the "alpha" component.

Regards,

Thanks Randy.  We're using ChartFX for Reporting Services, is there a way to specify this in the designer? If not, do you have some sample code for Reporting Services that would show how to pass this in?

Chart FX engine supports it. Unfortunately, the only way to specify the series color is writing code for the component, and it is not possible due to a Reporting Services limitation.

I apologize for the inconveniences this may cause.
