On my Columnserie, i have customised the color. I have  2 color on this serie (blue and green column).
So i need a special legend and i haven't found any easy way to implemt a legend for theses 2 colors.

I use this code, but i don't know how to set an icon and his color to a legenditem.

private void CreateLegend()
               LegendItem item = new LegendItem();
               item.CheckBoxVisibility = Visibility.Collapsed;
               item.Interior = Brushes.Green;
               item.IconHeight = 10;
               item.IconWidth = 10;
               item.IconVisibility = Visibility.Visible;
               item.Stroke = Brushes.Black;
               item.StrokeThickness = 1;
               item.Label = "Week";
               item.Series = ColSerie;
               ChartLegend legend2 = new ChartLegend();
               legend2.Header = "CA";
               legend2.FontFamily = new FontFamily("Bradley Hand ITC");
               legend2.FontSize = 16;
               this.lineChart.Legend = legend2;
