DiagramCoordinates Class

Represents an object that contains descriptive information about a geometrical point within the diagram.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraCharts

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraCharts.v19.2.dll

Declaration

[RuntimeObject]
public sealed class DiagramCoordinates
<RuntimeObject>
Public NotInheritable Class DiagramCoordinates

Remarks

The DiagramCoordinates class contains the argument and value (as well as their scale types) of the series point to which the geometrical point corresponds.

An object of the DiagramCoordinates type is returned by the XYDiagram2D.PointToDiagram and RadarDiagram.PointToDiagram methods.

Examples

The following example illustrates use of XYDiagram2D.PointToDiagram method for dragging the constant line with the mouse, and changing the series point values accordingly.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;

namespace InteractiveConstantLine {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        public Form1() {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        bool dragging = false;
        ChartControl chart;

            this.line = this.diagram.AxisX.ConstantLines.GetConstantLineByName("ConstantLine1");

            // Add a title to the chart.
            ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
            chartTitle1.Text = "Drag the constant line...";
            this.chart.Titles.Add(chartTitle1);

        }

            }

            DiagramCoordinates coords = diagram.PointToDiagram(e.Location);
