Charts: Multiple colors on the same line series


  • Hi,

    I'm still relatively new to silverlight charts and I was wondering if there is a way to display multiple colors on the same line series.

    Basically I have a line series chart that displays temperature over time. Along with these two values I have a third boolean value. Now depending on whether or not this value is true I want the color of either the line itself or the background of the chart to change.

    Please take a look at the images below for a better understanding of what I mean.

    This is how my chart currently looks:

    This is what I want to happen (Whichever one is easiest):

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Note: I am using Silverlight 4 with Apr 2010 Toolkit.

  • Hi

    Did you ever resolve this? I also would like to be able to show more than one color on the line of a single line series

  • Sorry for bumping this thread again but can anyone give any hint about this issue? Is it possible to achieve this result with silverlight toolkit?

  • I think you can style the points.  Then in the style, use a property of your point object that binds to the color.

    I haven't done it, but I think you can.

  • But when i style the points don't i style the entire line points? Can i pick the ones i want and style them separately?

  • You style the point.  Then you can, for instance, use a value converter to convert your point information to color based on your logic.  You bind the style background to the point data, for instance.  So each point can be a different color based on the data.  Or they can all be the same, if the data for the color is all the same.

    You COULD programmatically apply a style to just certain points, but I wouldn't do that.  Too much work for questionable benefit.
