CrosshairHintBehavior Class

Defines the crosshair hint behavior.

Namespace: DevExpress.XamarinForms.Charts

Assembly: DevExpress.XamarinForms.Charts.dll

Declaration

public class CrosshairHintBehavior :
    HintBehavior

Remarks

Tooltips are the default display of the ChartView hints. To customize tooltips, refer to the TooltipHintBehavior class.

To set the chart hints to crosshair cursor behavior, set the Hint.Behavior property to the CrosshairHintBehavior object.

A crosshair cursor is a pair of intersecting horizontal and vertical lines (value line and argument line) with the corresponding axis labels at the end of these lines. You can use the corresponding properties of the CrosshairHintBehavior object to show or hide these lines and their labels, and the hint style ArgumentLineStyle and ValueLineStyle properties to customize their appearance.

A crosshair cursor displays its label (crosshair label) at the intersection of the value and argument lines. This tooltip shows the values for the current series point argument and value by default.

The chart may contain multiple series. In this case:

  • The crosshair cursor displays the value line for each series;
  • The crosshair label provides information for each series point and contains a group header that helps to operate with numerous data.

The CrosshairHintBehavior object provides properties that manage the crosshair label content and position.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to configure the crosshair cursor behavior and appearance.

<dxc:ChartView.Hint>
    <dxc:Hint Enabled="True" ShowMode="OnTap">
        <!--...-->
        <dxc:Hint.Behavior>
            <dxc:CrosshairHintBehavior GroupHeaderVisible="True"
                                       GroupHeaderTextPattern="{} Year: {A$YYYY}"
                                       ArgumentLabelVisible="True" ArgumentLineVisible="True"
                                       ValueLabelVisible="True" ValueLineVisible="True"
                                       HighlightPoint="True"
                                       MaxSeriesCount="3">
                <dxc:CrosshairHintBehavior.LabelPosition>
                    <dxc:StaticCrosshairLabelPosition />
                </dxc:CrosshairHintBehavior.LabelPosition>
            </dxc:CrosshairHintBehavior>
        </dxc:Hint.Behavior>
    </dxc:Hint>
<dxc:ChartView.Hint>
