Pie Chart does not support gradient fill

    Greetings,

    I am trying to use a Pie Chart control with a gradient fill inside my Data Dynamics report (.rdlx). The gradient fill seems to work great with the Column and Bar Charts, but it does not work with the Pie Chart.

    To configure the gradient, I right clicked the Chart -> Properties -> Chart - Data -> Series Values -> Styles -> Background Fill Color

    I assigned a Fill Color, Gradient (direction), and a Gradient End Color.

    Ultimately, the Pie Chart came out with solid colors instead of gradients.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately DataDynamicsReports is a discontinued product and we no longer provide support for it. However, I tested this issue with ActiveReports 9 RDL reports and was unable to replicate this issue. I have attached a sample RDLX file which I created to test this issue.

    I would suggest you to download ActiveReports 9 from the following link and load the attached RDLX in the designer to check the results:

    Please update the path to Nwind.rdsx in the report's datasource before previewing it.
