Adding point dynamically


Recommended Posts


I want to implement a function that will add point dynamically in my chart by clicking anywhere in the chart.

To do this, I need to get the mouse coordinate relative to my axis. I found some methods in HitTestEventArgs, like AbsoluteLocation and Location but I don't know how to convert this location in my axis coordinate.

Any idea?

Axis.PixelToValue will convert your location to the logical equivalent for that axis.

Normally, for a chart with just one Y-Axis and one X-Axis you will do:

 double x = chart.AxisX.PixelToValue(e.Location.X);

 double y = chart.AxisY.PixelToValue(e.Location.Y);

This may change if you have multiple axes/panes.
