There is a specific way to add charting colours and it depends on the way your chart is configured.

With the simple XML you will use something like this:

<chart>

<searchName> my search </searchName>

<option name="charting.chart">pie</option>

<option name="charting.seriesColors">[0x263E7B,0x9EB1DE,0x65718E]</option>

</chart>

With the advanced XML, you can use something like this:

<module name="HiddenChartFormatter">

<param name="chart">pie</param>

<param name="charting.seriesColors">[0x263E7B,0x9EB1DE,0x65718E,0xAFBDDE]</param>
<module name="FlashChart">

The documentation is here.

If you look at the results in tabular format, you will have three rows:

accepted count percent
rejected count percent
exception count percent

Or something like that...

As far as I understand, the charting porition will assign the colour based on the row assignment such that:

accepted count percent -> 0x263E7B
rejected count percent -> 0x9EB1DE
exception count percent -> 0x65718E

I have not tested that but my spidey sense tells me so... :).

BTW: You can extropolate a colour scheme at http://colorschemedesigner.com/. And if you can, please donate to keep them online.

Tats cool..Ok..can i restrict these colors for specfic values .

i.e assume i am using three colors as you mentioned above
0x263E7B,0x9EB1DE,0x65718E and i have three values for my pie chart Accepted,Rejected and Exception.

Always Accepted count should be given 0x263E7B color and Rejected with 0x9EB1DE color and Exception with 0x65718E color for all the three pie charts in my dashboard...

How can i acheive this ??
