Setting colors for markers instead of series

Recommended Posts


You can set the color property with a particular index algorithm. This is explained in detail in the ChartFX API guide but essentially you can do this way.

When MultipleColors is set to TRUE, the index is a combination of the series and the point indexes. i.e. if you want to set the color for the 4Th series and the 7Th point, you use

nIndex = (3 + (6*nSeries))

ChartFX1.color(nIndex) = RGBColor

Conversation: HOW TO: Get the color of data points in a PIE chart

Subject: HOW TO: Get the color of data points in a PIE chart


I know how to get/set the color for a bar chart - using the series property

color. But how can I get the color in a pie chart? The problem is

(obviously) that the colors are not assigned to series anymore, rather they

are assigned to each data point. But how can I get those and set those? The

same question then arises for pyramid / donought charts.

Thanks in advance,
