Hello PradeepYadhav,

You can in V9 by selecting the bar you want to format, rightclick and choose ChartOptions>SelectedItem.
Then on the Fill tab RightClick on any of the empty colour boxes at the bottom and choose Define Custom Color

Can this be done in Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET ?

PradeepYadhav,

No.  Unfortunately this cannot be done in the .Net version (If you follow Pete's instructions you'll notice there is no "Selected Item" option on the popup menu).

You could obtain an independant copy of Crystal Reports and develop your reports and them include them as resources in your .Net application.  In this was you could format chart colors before bringing into .Net and they will stay as selected.  I know this ability is in 8.5 and 9 - I don't know about other versions.

Hi Frodoman

I have crystal 8.5 but I am not able to select the bar in the graph. The whole graph gets selected. Are you sure you can do it in 8.5 if so how ?

I think I need Crystal 9.0.

Yes, but it's a little bit different process to get to it.

In Preview mode click the chart to select it, then Report -> Chart Analyzer.  This opens a new tab (you'll have design, preview, and analyzer).  On the chart analyzer tab you can select the bar and change it's properties.

What if none of my color boxes are emtpy (so that I can right click and custom define)? Is there a way to reset the 16 boxes below the standard colors? Is there another way to define custom colors?
