How to manipulate Chart Legend?


The chart legend can be displayed by setting ShowLegend property as true. ShowItemsShadow is used to display shadow. BackInterior property specifies the gradient style and background style of the legend. DockingFree property allows us to dock the legend anywhere in the chart area.


// Displays Legend

this.chartControl1.ShowLegend = true;

this.chartControl1.Legend.BackInterior = new BrushInfo(GradientStyle.ForwardDiagonal, Color.White, Color.LightBlue);

// Setting Border Properties

this.chartControl1.Legend.Border.ForeColor = Color.Red;

this.chartControl1.Legend.Border.DashStyle = DashStyle.Dot;

this.chartControl1.Legend.Border.Width = 2;

this.chartControl1.Legend.DockingFree = true;

this.chartControl1.Legend.ShowItemsShadow = false;

this.chartControl1.Legend.ShowSymbol = false;

// Setting Text Properties

this.chartControl1.Legend.Text = "MyLegend";

this.chartControl1.Legend.TextColor = Color.Brown;

this.chartControl1.Legend.Font = new Font("Verdana", 8f, FontStyle.Bold);


' Displays Legend

Me.ChartControl1.ShowLegend = True

Me.ChartControl1.Legend.BackInterior = New BrushInfo(GradientStyle.ForwardDiagonal, System.Drawing.Color.White, System.Drawing.Color.LightBlue)
