Examples

This example shows how to provide a custom appearance for the crosshair cursor using the ChartControl.CustomDrawCrosshair event. This event is invoked when you click the Custom Draw Crosshair Cursor button on the form.

If you wish to display crosshair axis lines and labels on a chart before custom drawing the crosshair cursor, set the CrosshairOptions.ShowArgumentLabels, CrosshairOptions.ShowArgumentLine, CrosshairOptions.ShowValueLabels and CrosshairOptionsBase.ShowValueLine properties to true.

Note that the customization of the crosshair cursor is provided for the CrosshairOptions.SnapMode property set to NearestArgument.
