  • Hi Alex,

    Could you please help with the following problem?

    I have downloaded the (ChartFXNet62Trial.exe) from the Microsoft's site. I am developing a windows form based application and I am displaying the results of an analysis in the chart control. I am able to display the data without any problem. But our requirement now is that the user will select a range in the chart and we should be able to find the points in the selected region and highlight it (can be anything, like set the background transparent or change the bar color etc). The user should also be able to drag the region so as to increase or decrease the selected region's size. Based on the selection, I need to get the x and y of all the points in the selected region and do calculations.

    Is this possible with MS Chart control? If yes, could you please let me know the code and the events I need to put the code?
