How to display symbols with Chart points and to display shadow for chart elements?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: Chart |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: June 25, 2019


First set the shape, size and color for the symbol and add the symbol to the Symbol property exposed by the ChartStyleInfo class.

We can display shadow for the Chartcontrol by setting its ChartAreaShadow property to true and for the series make the DisplayShadow property exposed by ChartStyleInfo to true.


// Displaying shapes in series

series.Style.Symbol.Shape = ChartSymbolShape.Pentagon;

series.Style.Symbol.Color = Color.Red;

series.Style.Symbol.Size = new Size(15,15);

// Display shadow in series

series.Style.DisplayShadow = true;

series.Style.ShadowOffset = new Size(5, 5);

// Display shadow in chart area

this.chartControl1.ChartAreaShadow = true;


' Displaying shapes in series

series.Style.Symbol.Shape = ChartSymbolShape.Pentagon

series.Style.Symbol.Color = Color.Red

series.Style.Symbol.Size = New Size(15, 15)

' Display shadow in series

series.Style.DisplayShadow = True

series.Style.ShadowOffset = New Size(5, 5)

' Display shadow in chart area

Me.chartControl1.ChartAreaShadow = True
