Re: Re: How to Change Chart background grid color

with regard to the list box background, you may need to change the Selection style as LED Check Boxes

you can then chosse the Background button as seen below and set the color to 100% transparent

Re: How to Change Chart background grid color

Hi

If by bricks you mean the bars, then go to the Expression tab and click the + to left of the expressions and for Background Colour give a definition using a colour function like Red() or Blue().or rgb(222,55,99)...........

If I have misunderstood what you are after then please clarify your question.

Best Regards,     Bill

Re: How to Change Chart background grid color

I think the bricks is the grid style.

The color does change, it is just not bright, a sort of "gray-ish".  I can see the difference between red and blue, not much of green.

In any case, I'd rather avoid bricks and tiles.  They maybe look "cool" but take more resources.  For example, print chart as PDF when the grid is bricks, tiles, and simple lines - the PDF size is quite different.

(I have to add that last time I used it was many versions ago, maybe it is better now.)

Regards,

Michael

Re: How to Change Chart background grid color

I guess this is what you want...

In chart properties, tab Style, find Plot Are Background Style, and change it from Minimal to Frame or Shadow.

Apply and go to Colors tab.  Click Plot Area, and use one color gradient or two color gradient.  Choose colors you want.

Did I guess it right this time?

Edit: attached
