Renderers such as the DotDensityRenderer and ChartRenderer show field name information in their legend information. This tells you which pie slice, or dot symbol for example, corresponds to the attribute values from a particular field. To change the text string that appears in a renderer's legend entry, you can use this property, or you can use IChartRenderer::Label. They both do the same thing.
