Hi Syncfusion,

Is it possible to change the colour of each bar in the same single series?

Eg: take your example:

Each bar is the same colour. I would like to make each bar a different colour if possible? How to do it if possible?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Chong,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

You can set specific color to each bar by using the PrepareStyle event of the Chart series or by using the Styles[seriesindex].Interior property as shown in the code snippets below,

1. private void Series1_PrepareStyle(object sender, ChartPrepareStyleInfoEventArgs args)
ChartSeries series=sender as ChartSeries;
if (args.Index == 0)
args.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(Color.Green);
else if (args.Index == 1)
args.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(Color.Bisque);
else if (args.Index == 2)
args.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(Color.Cyan);
else if (args.Index == 3)
args.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(Color.Blue);
else if (args.Index == 4)
args.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(Color.Red);



2. series.Styles[0].Interior= new BrushInfo(Color.Red);
series.Styles[1].Interior= new BrushInfo(Color.Green);
series.Styles[2].Interior= new BrushInfo(Color.Blue);
series.Styles[3].Interior= new BrushInfo(Color.Violet);
series.Styles[4].Interior= new BrushInfo(Color.BurlyWood);

or if your intention is to have different colors for the series each item when the sample is executed it can be done as shown in the code snippet below,

Random r=new Random();
for(int i=0;iseries.Styles[i].Interior= new BrushInfo(Color.FromArgb(r.Next(0,255),r.Next(0,255),r.Next(0,255)));

Let me know whether this helps you.

Thanks & Regards,
