Chart Background


Recommended Posts

There are 2 factors that affect the background of the chart

1) Background property: This is a brush property so you can use solid colors as well as any other WPF brush.

XAML:<cfx:Chart x:Name="chart1" Background="LightYellow">

Code:chart1.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Blue;

2) Style property: some styles might use the background in different ways or draw semi-transparent layers on top of the background, this property allows you to change the overall look of the chart. Note that each style will use a different color Palette (Palette Property) but you can override the colors by changing the palette or changing specific brushes.



cfx:Chart x:Name="chart1" Style="{x:Static cfxMotifs:Simple.Style}">

Code:chart1.Style = ChartFX.WPF.Motifs.Simple.Style;

A border template is supposed to honor the background so in a sense it can affect it. The template can also show some effects on top of the background. Please note that if you plan to use our built in borders you should use the Chart.Border property along with an element from the ChartFX.WPF.Borders class. The reason for this change is design time support in Visual Studio.

You can easily see how our different borders look if you change the Chart.Style to ChartFX.WPF.Motifs.Basic and then use the different borders, by setting the style to basic you will have a simpler chart which will help see the different borders.
