Ok so I went to NT support - and they can't reveal the BackColorAll method to the users and apparently you can't convert a brush to a color. All very frustrating. For something that seems to simple.

What I find intensely frustrating is that I have exposed the following

ChartControl.Bounds
ChartControl.BackColor and BackColorAll
ChartControl.Canvas points
Even Rectangle screenRectangle = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds

NONE of which will give the bounds of the whole form on which the chart is made- maddening.

Why do you spend so much time on changing the colors, better focus on making profits!

The path to enlightenment takes you where it may. And
doesn't it bother you that you don't' know the answer?
