Symptoms

On : PeopleTools 8.55.08 version, Charting

SetColorArray is no longer working to allow custom colors.
Two charts, one is of type 6 - %ChartType_2DPie and the other 3 - %ChartType_2DHorizStackedBar. Both are set to display custom colors and have been working fine through PT8.55.04, CS 9.0 Bundle 40. After upgrading to PT8.55.08, CS 9.0 Bundle 42 it was noticed that the colors are no longer appearing correctly on the 2DHorizStackedBar.

Different chart types and have tested and it was found that a few will render with the colors specified in the SetColorArray method, but most, including 3 - %ChartType_2DHorizStackedBar ignore this method. The types that respect the SetColorArray method are 7, 8, 12 (undocumented) and 13.
 
 
Replication
---------------
The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Create a custom chart and use the "SetColorArray" feature to add custom colors
2. Render chart
3. Observe custom colors did not apply
