Legend Object (PowerPoint)

Represents the legend in a chart. Each chart can have only one legend.

Version Added: PowerPoint 2007

The Legend object contains one or more LegendEntry objects; each LegendEntry object contains a LegendKey object.

The chart legend is not visible unless the HasLegend property is True. If this property is False, properties and methods of the Legend object will fail.

Note Note

Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.

Use the Legend property to return the Legend object. The following example sets the font style for the legend of the first chart in the active document to bold.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1)

    If .HasChart Then

        .Chart.Legend.Font.Bold = True

    End If

End With
