Can I change the highlight color for chart data?

I find the highlight color to be too dark. It is possible to have a lighter color for the highlight effect? TIA

Hi, The Highlight color is controlled by the HightlightInterior property of a point style. You can modify the Highlight interior for each point by setting the Style.HighlightInterior: Approach 1: Set the HighlightInterior for each point style. If a series has 10 points, you need to set the style for all 10 point styles VB.NET: Dim highlightColor As BrushInfo = New BrushInfo(Color.LightBlue) seriesCount.Styles(0).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(1).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(2).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(3).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(4).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(5).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(6).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(7).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(8).HighlightInterior = highlightColor seriesCount.Styles(9).HighlightInterior = highlightColor Approach 2 (Recommended): Use the callback approach AddHandler seriesCount.PrepareStyle, AddressOf Me.ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle Protected Sub ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As ChartPrepareStyleInfoEventArgs) '' Style formatting using a callback. You can apply the same settings directly on the series style on the '' point styles. Dim series As ChartSeries = sender Dim rand As New Random() If Not (series Is Nothing) Then args.Style.HighlightInterior = New BrushInfo(Color.LightBlue) args.Handled = True End If End Sub Thanks, Davis
