Asked On September 12, 2006 02:22 PM UTC

Hi, I have a set of data which I would like to present in two different ways in a columnchart. The data should be grouped in two ways. In the first way the colors should be the same within the group section and in the other way the colors of the columns should be different within the group section, see attachment. I would like to create a serie for each grouped section and be able to manually set the color of each column within the serie. Is this possible or how shall I do to obtain the result presented in the attachment? Best regards //Mariana

Hi Mariana,

Thank you for your continued interest in Syncfusion products.

PrepareStyle Event : When a series point is about be rendered by the chart, it will raise this event and allow event subscribers to change the style used. You can handle this event to change the style attributes of a chart.

The following code snippet helps you to declare and define the PrepareStyle event in VB.NET.

AddHandler series1.PrepareStyle, AddressOf Me.ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle

Protected Sub ChartControlSeries_PrepareStyle(sender As Object, args As ChartPrepareStyleInfoEventArgs)


With PrepareStyle event you can do the following :

1)Associate symbols,Images,text with PointIndex in different colors.
2)Different colors for each PointIndex.
3)Display the X and Y values using ToolTip.
4)Change the TextOrientation to some degree and so on.

Please try the attached sample which uses the PrepareStyle event to display the symbols on the PointIndex.

Kindly let me know if this helps.
