Use the following code

    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate
    With ActiveChart.Legend.Format.Fill
        .Visible = msoTrue
        .ForeColor.ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorAccent1
        .ForeColor.TintAndShade = 0.3399999738
        .ForeColor.Brightness = 0
        .BackColor.ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorAccent1
        .BackColor.TintAndShade = 0.7649999857
        .BackColor.Brightness = 0
        .TwoColorGradient msoGradientHorizontal, 1
    End With
    With ActiveChart.Legend.Format.Shadow
        .Type = msoShadow25
        .Visible = msoTrue
        .Style = msoShadowStyleOuterShadow
        .Blur = 4
        .OffsetX = 3
        .OffsetY = 0
        .RotateWithShape = msoFalse
        .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 0)
        .Transparency = 0.599999994
        .Size = 100
    End With

Open in new window


Compile error: Method or member not found.
.ForeColor.Brightness = 0
.BackColor.Brightness = 0
Is there a another way to express brightness?
