Different Ways to Add Custom Colors to SSRS Reports
SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) has evolved as a strong reporting tool over last few years. One of the common needs in SSRS or any reporting tool for that matter is the ability to apply different colors of our choice to match the Theme/Color Combination/Corporate Branding. SSRS offers 12 different in-built color palettes (at the time of writing this article) for charts which is pretty large number. However, it does not always meet the needs or suite the Theme. To address this need, we need to be able to apply custom colors, basically any color represented by any valid HTML Color Code, to charts. There are various approaches to apply custom colors to charts in SSRS and we will see those approaches in this article with Pros and Cons of each of the approaches.
