Legends are not restricted to position on the top of chart. It needs to be placed in or around the plot area based on the series or data. This article describes how to customize the position of the legends.
Chart provides the following properties to align or position the legends in chart:
The DockPosition property is used to position the legends either at the bottom, left, right or top of the chart area, and the Floating property is used to position the legends anywhere over the plot area.
The OffsetX and OffsetY properties are used to give horizontal and vertical offsets for legends. These properties work only when the DockPosition is set to Floating.
The LegendPosition property is used to place the legends Inside or Outside of the plot area.
