  1. Hi geoff,
    when i add this part of code in my chart.xaml page but legend not displayed on chart area.
    so please help as soon as possible.

  2. This is just the standard chart template pulled out in blend. Are you using it with the zoom example or in a non-zoomed chart?

  3. I am using it with zoom example

  4. the zoom sample already has customised templates. You could add a legend to the main chart control but I can't remember if it will work with zooming. It may get zoomed which you don't want. When I implemented this, I used s listbox outside the chart on the right to display my own legend so the chart surface only contained series data
