Remarks

A Palette object is returned by the ChartControlBase.Palette property, which 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 via the CustomPalette.Colors property.

For more information, see Chart Themes and Palettes.

Examples

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.
