public void ApplyPaletteColors()

When the Chart colors are automatically assigned at run time, there is no way to know what the colors will be prior to the time when the chart rendered; the Color property of an automatically assigned value will return Empty at this time.

If you call the ApplyPaletteColors method, the colors for the series and the data points will be set, which allows for programmatic access.
