Property Value

Type Description

A Color value which specifies the chart control’s background color.


The BackColor property specifies the background color of the chart control. Note that the chart control’s constituent elements, such as a diagram or legend have their own background-related properties which, when set, override the corresponding properties of the chart control.

The XRChart‘s BackColor property doesn’t depend upon the BackColor property of its parent (while this is true for most other report controls - see Appearance Properties). If the BackColor property is set to Empty, it is obtained from a chart’s appearance.
