public Palette Palette { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A Palette class descendant object that represents the palette with colors.


The Palette property defines colors for series points. It can be set either to one of the standard palettes, or to a CustomPalette object. A custom palette’s colors are stored in the ColorCollection, which is available using the CustomPalette.Colors property.

The name of the currently selected palette can be accessed using the DXChartsPalette.PaletteName property. If some of the default palette colors were manually changed, you can obtain the currently used set of colors using the ChartControlBase.Palette property.

For more information, refer to Chart Themes and Palettes.


This example demonstrates how to change the series point colors by using a custom palette. To do this, a CustomPalette is added to the chart’s ChartControlBase.Palette. And, custom colors are specified via the CustomPalette.Colors property.
