using Syncfusion.OfficeChart;

 

VB.NET

Imports System.Drawing
Imports Syncfusion.DocIO
Imports Syncfusion.DocIO.DLS
Imports Syncfusion.OfficeChart

 

  1. Use the following code example to change the scatter chart marker color for each data points in Word document.

C#

//Creates a new Word document
WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
//Adds section to the document
IWSection sec = document.AddSection();
//Adds paragraph to the section
IWParagraph paragraph = sec.AddParagraph();
//Creates and Appends chart to the paragraph
WChart chart = paragraph.AppendChart(446, 270);
//Sets chart data - Row1
chart.ChartData.SetValue(1, 2, "Higest Price");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(1, 3, "Average Price");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(1, 4, "Lowest Price");
//Sets chart data - Row2
chart.ChartData.SetValue(2, 1, "BT");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(2, 2, 65);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(2, 3, 57.50);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(2, 4, 50);
//Sets chart data - Row3
chart.ChartData.SetValue(3, 1, "Carphone");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(3, 2, 69);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(3, 3, 46.48);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(3, 4, 30);
//Sets chart data - Row4
chart.ChartData.SetValue(4, 1, "EE");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(4, 2, 74);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(4, 3, 62.33);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(4, 4, 49);
//Sets chart data - Row5
chart.ChartData.SetValue(5, 1, "O2");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(5, 2, 67.25);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(5, 3, 52.64);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(5, 4, 40.56);
//Sets chart data - Row6
chart.ChartData.SetValue(6, 1, "Sky Mobile");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(6, 2, 85);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(6, 3, 60.20);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(6, 4, 38);
//Sets chart data - Row7
chart.ChartData.SetValue(7, 1, "Three");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(7, 2, 56);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(7, 3, 45);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(7, 4, 30);
//Sets chart data - Row8
chart.ChartData.SetValue(8, 1, "Vodafone");
chart.ChartData.SetValue(8, 2, 73);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(8, 3, 61);
chart.ChartData.SetValue(8, 4, 48);
//Creates a new chart series with the name
IOfficeChartSerie seriesHP = chart.Series.Add("Higest Price");
//Sets the data range of chart series – start row, start column, end row, end column
seriesHP.Values = chart.ChartData[2, 2, 8, 2];
//Creates a new chart series with the name
IOfficeChartSerie seriesAP = chart.Series.Add("Average Price");
//Sets the data range of chart series – start row, start column, end row, end column
seriesAP.Values = chart.ChartData[2, 3, 8, 3];
//Creates a new chart series with the name
IOfficeChartSerie seriesLP = chart.Series.Add("Lowest Price");
//Sets the data range of chart series – start row, start column, end row, end column
seriesLP.Values = chart.ChartData[2, 4, 8, 4];
//Specifies the chart title
chart.ChartTitle = "Headline MLR";
//Sets the data range of the category axis
chart.PrimaryCategoryAxis.CategoryLabels = chart.ChartData[2, 1, 8, 1];
chart.Legend.Position = OfficeLegendPosition.Top;
//Specifies the chart type
chart.ChartType = OfficeChartType.Scatter_Markers;
//Changes the marker style for series
chart.Series[1].SerieFormat.MarkerStyle = OfficeChartMarkerType.Circle;
chart.Series[1].SerieFormat.MarkerSize = 20;
//Displays the data label values of chart series
chart.Series[0].DataPoints.DefaultDataPoint.DataLabels.IsValue = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints.DefaultDataPoint.DataLabels.IsValue = true;
chart.Series[2].DataPoints.DefaultDataPoint.DataLabels.IsValue = true;
//Set a first marker color as Purple.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[0].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[0].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.Purple;
//Set a second marker color as Black.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[1].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[1].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.Black;
//Set a third marker color as Green.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[2].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[2].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.Green;
//Set a fourth marker color as Blue.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[3].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[3].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.Blue;
//Set a fifth marker color as SkyBlue.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[4].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[4].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.SkyBlue;
//Set a sixth marker color as Brown.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[5].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[5].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.Brown;
//Set a seventh marker color as Red.
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[6].IsDefaultmarkertype = true;
chart.Series[1].DataPoints[6].DataFormat.MarkerBackgroundColor = Color.Red;
//Saves the document
document.Save("Output.docx", FormatType.Docx);
//Closes the document
document.Close();
