Define an Appearance for Painting All Visual Elements
- 2 minutes to read
You can select a built-in appearance to easily change a chart's overall look and feel.
To quickly change the appearance of your chart, you can use the Appearance page of the Chart Wizard.
The following images demonstrate a chart with two different appearances.
|AppearanceName = Default||AppearanceName = Dark Flat|
When you specify the appearance of a chart, you may wish to individually paint each series, or each point within a series (e.g., a Bar series), and define the palette that is used to paint them. For details on how to use a palette to paint chart series, see the following help topic: Choose a Palette for Painting Series, Points and Indicators.
For a step-by-step tutorial, refer to the following help topic: How to: Customize a Chart's Appearance.
You can also allow end users to specify the pallette and appearance for a chart. The corresponding sample project is available in the following DevExpress Support Center example: How to provide end-users with the capability to change a chart's appearance on the fly.
