Class Legend

Encapsulates the object that represents the chart legend.

Example:

# Set Legend's width and height
workbook = Workbook()
sheetIndex = workbook.getWorksheets().add()
worksheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(sheetIndex)
charts = worksheet.getCharts()
# Create a chart
chart = charts.get(charts.add(ChartType.COLUMN, 1, 1, 10, 10))
legend = chart.getLegend()

# Legend is at right side of chart by default.
# If the legend is at left or right side of the chart, setting Legend.X property will not take effect.
# If the legend is at top or bottom side of the chart, setting Legend.Y property will not take effect.
legend.setY(1500)
legend.setWidth(50)
legend.setHeight(50)
# Set legend's position
legend.setPosition(LegendPositionType.LEFT)
