If the LegendText property is set to Empty or null (Nothing in Visual Basic), the corresponding legend item will be hidden.


This example demonstrates how you can conditionally customize legend items in the ChartControl.CustomDrawSeriesPoint event handler.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...

private void chartControl1_CustomDrawSeriesPoint(object sender, 
CustomDrawSeriesPointEventArgs e) {
    if (Convert.ToDouble(e.SeriesPoint.Values[0]) > 5) {
        e.LegendText = "exceeded";
        e.LegendTextColor = Color.Red;
    else {
        e.LegendMarkerVisible = false;
        e.LegendTextVisible = false;
