How to separate the ordering of a chart Legend with the actual chart?

Has anyone know how to "decouple" or separate the ordering of a chart Legend with the actual chart?  I've looked at "labels" under legend, but if I change that I change the ordering of my chart

You can achieve it using 'charting.legend.labels' option.

For example,
<option name="charting.legend.labels">["create","read","update","delete"]</option>
will order reorder your CRUD operations from the alphabetical C-D-R-U to desired C-R-U-D

Jihor. Thank you very much for the response. You are correct. Charting.legend.labels will re-order the legend entries. However, it also reorders the area chart. In my customers case this is not desirable. They want to decouple the chart from the legend in terms of ordering.

But since it is NOT possible, I am going to accept your answer.

Hi dcroteau,
I don't think that it's possible to "decouple" the ordering of a chart Legend with the actual chart: the order of a chart legend is alphabetical order and at the end there are OTHER NULL and eventually Total.
Bye.
