LegendBox Fonts

Post by blakeadkins » Thu Feb 26, 2015 3:25 pm

Future feature request:

Would it be possible to make it so that each item in the LegendBox can have a unique font rather than the LegendBox default font?

The font can't be currently set individually because all items must have the size there (height of the string).

But, individual colors can be used by setting LegendBox.UseSeriesTitlesColors and setting the colors in the series.Title.Color property. Is this a suitable solution for you?

I want to be able to for example make Trace1 text be slightly larger than the rest and set it bold.
Then I want to make Trace2 - Trace4 normal font size, but italicize Trace4 and change the font family.

That's just one example, but that's the type of customization I'd like to do.

We can't provide this feature at the moment, I'm sorry.

Please compose a custom legend box substitute with set of annotations. With this approach, you get total control over fonts, alignments, multi-row text, shadows and additional mouse-interactivity options. Even separate bitmap fill for each series.
