How to: Use Themes to Define the Look and Feel of Your Chart

This example demonstrates how to apply a theme that defines the overall look and feel of a chart by painting its main elements.

    <Grid>
        <!--Make sure to add the corresponding assembly to the References list of your project, 
        and define the ThemeManager.ThemeName property at the chart control's level.-->
        <dxc:ChartControl  core:ThemeManager.ThemeName="LightGray">
