Hello, I was wondering if there was a way to specify different colors for each data point in a column series, much like the CustomColors array method with a pie series. I would prefer not to create a separate series for each point. Thank you for your help. - Jarrod

Hi Jarrod, The color of each of the columns (points) in a Column Chart can be changed by handling the PrepareStyle event of the series. Please refer to the sample linked to below: F23032ChartPointsColor_8544.zip The relevant portion of the code in C# is also posted below: series.PrepareStyle += new ChartPrepareStyleInfoHandler(this.ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle); protected void ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle(object sender, ChartPrepareStyleInfoEventArgs args) { ChartSeries series = sender as ChartSeries; int r, g, b; switch(args.Index) { case 0: r = 222;b=245;g=123; break; case 1: r = 122;b=145;g=123; break; case 2: r = 22;b=45;g=123; break; case 3: r = 202;b=225;g=123; break; case 4: r = 22;b=125;g=123; break; case 5: r = 200;b=45;g=123; break; case 6: r = 2;b=25;g=23; break; case 7: r = 222;b=24;g=123; break; case 8: r = 222;b=245;g=3; break; case 9: r = 222;b=245;g=123; break; case 10: r = 222;b=5;g=123; break; case 11: r = 22;b=25;g=123; break; default: r = 222;b=245;g=123; break; } if(series != null) { args.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(GradientStyle.None,Color.Black,Color.FromArgb(r,g,b ) ); args.Handled = true; } Thanks, Davis

Hi Ronda,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Since, We were updated our server recently, some locations are changed. We are checking with this location and will

send you once we get the updated link.

I have created a similar sample and attached in the below link. I have mentioned another code also in the sample to

customize the color of individual points.

Please let me know if this helps.
