public Color ShadowColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color

A Color value. The default color is Black.

Gets or sets the shadow color of a series, which can be to any valid ARGB (alpha, red, green, blue) value.

The alpha value can be used to achieve a realistic shadow effect; try using a color value of "128,0,0,0" for shadows.

To implement a shadow, set the ShadowOffset property to a value other than zero (0).

' Set series shadow color and offset
Public Sub SetSeriesShadow()
     Chart1.Series("Default"}.ShadowColor = Color.Blue
     Chart1.Series("Default"}.ShadowOffset = 2
End Sub 'SetSeriesShadow
// Set series shadow color and offset 
public void SetSeriesShadow()
    Chart1.Series("Default"}.ShadowColor = Color.Blue;
    Chart1.Series["Default"].ShadowOffset = 2;
