Appearance Customization

To define an appearance for your chart, you can use appearances and palettes.

Appearances determine the overall look and feel of a chart, by painting its visual elements.

Palettes are sets of colors for painting individual series. And, to mark out the chart's indicators, you can use a separate option to paint them differently.

The documents in this section explain these concepts in greater detail.
