    Hello @meka123,

    There's no supported way to arbitrarily change the order of the legend. The way you pointed does not correspond to the data shown in the chart. The chart "zero" point is in the origin (where x and y axes are joined), where January is. Probably what you want to switch is the x-axis/months (which shows as y-axis because the chart is flipped) draw order. For that you would need to adjust the data to feed the chart from December to January.

    Yet, the order of the colors shown are displayed bottom-up in the chart where they are presented top-down in the legend. While this makes sense, there's no supported way to just invert this order. Of course, you can just override or extend the charts methods to make them print it the way you need. The components are highly customizable, but that would require in-depth knowledge of how Ext JS works. You may look for issues with chart legends with provided overrides to get an idea of what's involved in overriding. A starting point would be seeing how overrides helped this issue: Column chart legend not showing correct color incase of merged chart

    Hope this helps!
