User defined color palettes based on a Default color palette

Hi

Our application uses the default color schemes (ChartFX6)

Some clients want some of the colors (e.g. series colors) altered in a few of the charts. I've used the article on creating your own palettes (Q6001019. Creating color palettes for ChartFX for .NET) and have got it working fine.

However the colors supplied for this article (user.pal) are not based on my base color scheme (ChartFX6). Thus the colors of many aspects of the charts differ from our standard look. Getting compatibility between series and borders is also problematic.

The best way is to adjust the ChartFX6 palette for the client requests. How would I go about getting this?

Thanks

David
