The BackSecondaryColor property determines the secondary background color of many Chart objects, and is used when gradient colors are being applied.

You can set BackSecondaryColor to any valid ARGB (alpha, red, green, blue) value.

If hatching is used, the BackSecondaryColor property determines the color of the hatching lines for the chart.

To use gradient colors for the background of a chart:

  • Set the primary color with the BackColor property.

  • Set the secondary color with the BackSecondaryColor property.

  • Set the BackGradientStyle property to the desired gradient style.
