I''ve got a chart where I''m providing my own background image (via ChartControl.ChartBackImage). I''m also setting ChartControl.ChartInterior to new BrushInfo(Color.Empty). When I do this, it does use the image I''ve supplied, but the center rectangle of the graph (the data rectangle bounded by the Y axis on the left and the X axis on the bottom) seems to have a gradient applied to my image. At the left side of that rectangle, the image is just as I provided it (mostly filled with solid white). It darkens from left to right, down to a C8C8E6 bluish grey. Then as soon as you pass the right side of that rectangle (past the end of the X axis), it''s back to white. Other colors in my background are similarly darkened toward the right side of the data area rectangle. As far as I know I haven''t asked for a gradient, and I don''t see how to turn it off. I tried saying ChartInterior = new BrushInfo(GradientStyle.None, Color.Empty, Color.Empty); to see if that would convince it that I didn''t want a gradient, but it didn''t help. Is this a bug, or is there some API that I need to use to suppress the gradient, or am I doing something wrong? Thanks! - Rich
