How to change chart legend docking in asp.net

Change a Chart legend’s docking
The Chart class serves as the root class of the Chart control. The Chart class exposes all of the properties, methods, and events of the Chart Web server control. The Chart Series collection property stores Series objects which are used to store data that is to be displayed, along with attributes of that data. The Chart ChartAreas collection property stores ChartArea objects, which are primarily used to draw one or more charts using one set of axes.

The following asp.net c# web development tutorial code demonstrates how we can change the docking of a Chart legend. Here we will use the Chart class Legends property to get the legend collection. Then we will get the specified legend instance by its id. And then we will change the Chart legend docking by setting the Legend class Docking property value.

The Chart Legends property gets or sets a LegendCollection object that is used to store all Legend objects used by the Chart control. This property value is a LegendCollection that is used to store all Legend objects. This Chart collection property stores all Legend objects used by the Chart control.

The Legend class represents the legend for the chart image. The Legend class encapsulates all the functionality of the Chart control's legend and is exposed using the Legends collection property of the root Chart object. In a Chart object can be any number of legends for a chart image.

The Legend class Docking property gets or sets a value that determines where the legend is docked. This property value is a Docking enumeration value that determines where the legend is docked. The default value is Right.

The Chart Legend can be docked to the top, left, bottom, or right of either the entire chart image or the inside or outside of a chart area. The Docking enumeration specifies where a chart element, such as a legend or title, will be docked on the chart.
