There is a built in feature in Charts which can be used to select items by mouseselected area ,even multiple selection can be made.
But my requirement is that i want that selected region which is shown as a transparent rectangle to exist even after mouse button is released.
So that a rectangle is shown and inside that selected items are highlighted. I am not sure if there is any direct way [ to make that selected region a RECT].
currently i am trying to draw rectangle with graphics.drawrect after getting co-ordinates on mouse Down an Up events. but am not able to add it to chart.
If Anyone has done or know ,please let me know the suitable way.
thnkx n REgards,
Prad, there's an example here that shows something similar to what you are trying to do:
Under Customization, look at the Annotation example. You can combine the logic from this with your selection logic to make a persistent rectangle of selected chart items.
link was helpful,
though i made it myself through some other logic.
