Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color
A Color value that specifies the shadow color of a chart area. The default color is Black.

This property can be set to any valid ARGB (alpha, red, green, blue) value.

The alpha value can be used to achieve a "realistic" shadowing effect; try 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).
