RadarSeriesViewBase.ColorEach Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether each data point of a series is shown in a different color.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v20.1.dll


public bool ColorEach { get; set; }
Public Property ColorEach As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description

true to specify that each data point in a series has a different color; false to use the same color for all the series' data points.


Use the ColorEach property to control whether chart elements which represent an individual data point are drawn in different colors. If this property is set to true, colors for series data points are generated automatically based upon the palette specified by the ChartControl.PaletteName (WebChartControl.PaletteName) property.


The following example demonstrates how to create a ChartControl with a series of the PolarPointSeriesView type, set its general properties, and add this chart to a form at runtime. Before proceeding with this example, first create a Windows Forms Application in Visual Studio, and include all necessary assemblies to the References list of your project.

Then, add the following code to the Form.Load event handler.

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

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Create a new chart.
    ChartControl polarPointChart = new ChartControl();

    // Add a polar series to it.
    Series series1 = new Series("Series 1", ViewType.PolarPoint);

    // Populate the series with points.
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(0, 90));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(45, 70));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(90, 50));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(135, 100));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(180, 90));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(225, 70));
    series1.Points.Add(new SeriesPoint(270, 50));

    // Add the series to the chart.

    // Adjust the view-type specific properties of the series.
    PolarPointSeriesView myView = (PolarPointSeriesView)series1.View;

    myView.PointMarkerOptions.Kind = MarkerKind.Star;
    myView.PointMarkerOptions.StarPointCount = 5;
    myView.PointMarkerOptions.Size = 20;

    // Flip the diagram (if necessary).
    ((PolarDiagram)polarPointChart.Diagram).StartAngleInDegrees = 180;
    ((PolarDiagram)polarPointChart.Diagram).RotationDirection =

    // Add a title to the chart, and hide the legend.
    polarPointChart.Titles.Add(new ChartTitle());
    polarPointChart.Titles[0].Text = "A Polar Point Chart";
    polarPointChart.Legend.Visible = false;

    // Add the chart to the form.
    polarPointChart.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
