Transparent BACKGROUND

Post by 0uss » Thu Oct 05, 2017 8:58 pm

Hello everybody,

I want to know if there is any way to make charts with transparent background?

I'm using this code but it seems that I'm missing something:

Code: Select all

            lightningChartUltimate1.Background.Color = Color.Transparent;
            lightningChartUltimate1.Background.GradientColor = Color.Transparent;
            lightningChartUltimate1.Background.GradientFill = Arction.LightningChartUltimate.GradientFill.Solid;
            lightningChartUltimate1.ViewXY.GraphBackground.Color = Color.Transparent;
            lightningChartUltimate1.ViewXY.GraphBackground.GradientColor = Color.Transparent;
            lightningChartUltimate1.ViewXY.GraphBackground.GradientFill = Arction.LightningChartUltimate.GradientFill.Solid;
Any help would be appreciated :) thank you !

WinForms don't support transparent background of controls. Therefore LC doesn't support that either.

In our WPF chart, transparent background is supported.
