    The legend contains identifiers for each of the series of the data. The legend area can contain legend items, a background, and borders. The legend area is positioned using a relative location (where (0,0) = the left upper corner of the chart and (1,1) = the right lower corner of the chart) and a relative alignment (where (0,0) = the left upper corner of the label area and (1,1) = the right lower corner of the label area).

    See the following for more information on how to set properties for the legend:


    The following example sets properties for the legend.

    Copy Code
    FarPoint.Win.Chart.LegendArea legend = new FarPoint.Win.Chart.LegendArea();
    legend.Location = new PointF(0.98f, 0.5f);
    legend.AlignmentX = 1.0f;
    legend.AlignmentY = 0.5f;
    Visual Basic
    Copy Code
    Dim legend As New FarPoint.Win.Chart.LegendArea()
    legend.Location = New PointF(0.98F, 0.5F)
    legend.AlignmentX = 1.0F
    legend.AlignmentY = 0.5F
