How can I change the color of bar chart based on value in database column?

For example, in table "STATUS" in my database, I have 3 type of value. What I want is:

1) If the value = 0, then color will change to blue.

2) If the value = 1, then color will change to red.

3) If the value = 2, then color will change to green.

I use MSChart to create the chart.

I set the default color as blue.
I tried to store STATUS value in dataset and do for loop to retrieve the value.
If i found value = 2, then it will change to green.
Else the color will be red.
But its not worked.

Here is the code:

       For Each dp As DataPoint In Chart1.Series("Wilma").Points
            For i As Integer = 0 To grpDT.Rows.Count - 1
                    If (grpDT.Rows(i).Item("Status").ToString() = "2") Then
                        dp.Color = Color.Green
                    Else
                        dp.Color = Color.Red
                    End If
                Next
        Next

Can someone help me please. I'm stuck at this almost a week :(

logic looks ok. Check dp.Color is exact method to give the color to chart. You can try giving color to one chart in form load or click of button for testing. if this works then above code should work

no it still not work.. i try to reload it and nothing happen. it still wont change to green.
