Certain dashboard items provide the capability to color dashboard item elements by associating dimension values/measures and specified colors. You can choose whether to use a global color scheme to provide consistent colors for identical values or specify a local color scheme for each dashboard item. To learn more about coloring concepts common for all dashboard items, see the Coloring section.

By default, the Chart dashboard item colors different measures and series dimensions by hue. In the example below, series points corresponding to different countries (UK and USA) are painted in different colors.


To access Chart coloring options in code, use the ChartDashboardItemBase.ColoringOptions property.


Note that the Chart dashboard item does not support coloring for the financial series.
