Remarks

Use the CalcHitInfo method to determine which element is located at the point with the specified coordinates. For example, you can use this method in the chart's Click event handler to determine clicked element. In this case, pass the current mouse pointer's coordinates as the method's parameter.

IMPORTANT

Make sure that the ChartControl.RuntimeHitTesting property is set to true to enable hit testing at runtime.

The Chart Control supports only 2D Chart Types hit testing and does not support hit testing for 3D Chart Types.
