Isn't it possible to have the chartarea and plotarea transparent (the same way you can set the chart- and plot area to "none" instead of a color in Excel).

Hi Magnus,

Thank you for being patient.

Isn't it possible to have the chartarea and plotarea transparent?

It is possible to set the Chartarea and Plotarea be transparent. Please refer the below code:

//Set colors for chart Area
chart.ChartArea .Fill.ForeColor = Color.Transparent;
chart.ChartArea.Fill.BackColor = Color.Transparent;

//Plot Area
IChartFrameFormat chartPlotArea = chart.PlotArea;

//Set colors for plot area
chartPlotArea.Fill.ForeColor = Color.Transparent;
chartPlotArea.Fill.BackColor = Color.Transparent;

Also, Please refer the sample in the below link which illustrates the above:


Please let me know if you have any concerns.
