By default, color order for each series is blue, brown, green, light green, etc.
I would like to specify the order of colors. For example : Red, Green, Blue, etc.
And obviously, the color of legend have to be in the same order.

I created the function UpdateSeriesDefaultColor in code behind dedicated to change what I want.
I changed the Interior property of the first series but it change all items color (see sample code).

Hi Dario,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

You can achieve your requirement by applying the custom palette for chart series as shown in the below code snippet.

Code Snippet[C#]:

var series = new PieSeries


      ItemsSource = BuilModel(),

      XBindingPath = "Country",

      YBindingPath = "Count",


      ColorModel=new ChartColorModel(){CustomBrushes=GetBrushes()}


Please refer the below UG documentation about the SfChart Palette.

We have modified the sample based on your requirement. Please find the sample in the below location.
