Property Value

Type Description

A String, which represents the pattern. The default value is Empty.


Use the LegendPattern property to define a pattern for displaying text by the legend. Various placeholders enclosed in braces correspond to the available display patterns. For example, a pair of placeholders specified together (e.g., {A} - {V}), will cause each data point to be represented by both its argument and value, separated by a hyphen.

A full list of available placeholders is detailed below.

Pattern Description
{A} Displays a series point argument.
{V} Displays series point values.
{VP} Displays series point values as percentages (for a Pie and Nested Donut series and Full-Stacked series).
{S} Displays the name of the series.
{G} Displays the name of a stacked group.

Before specifying the {S} placeholder for a series, make sure a series name is specified in the Series.DisplayName property.
