    I'm charting a XYZ scatter plot and I'm trying to allow the user to adjust the parameters of the walls through the GUI.  I can set the transparency of the solid wall with the chart designer but I can't figure out how to do it through code.  I'm using VB in VS 2008, any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hello Mark,

    You can set the transparency through code using SolidFill and specifying the color using FromArgb() .Here, first argument of Color.FromArgb() represents the alpha blending value. 0 meaning fully transparent, 255 meaning totally not transparent(fully opaque). If you are requesting a fully transparent color then it means you don't see any color, just the background. Please have a look at the code:


    Dim sf As FarPoint.Win.Chart.SolidFill = New SolidFill(Color.FromArgb(255, Color.Red))
    chartXYZ.Model.Fill = sf


    Hope this will help you. Thanks.
