NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Charts


public event QueryCursorEventHandler QueryCursor

Event Data

The QueryCursor event's data class is QueryCursorEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Cursor Gets or sets the mouse cursor currently being shown for the chart.
CursorType Gets the cursor type.


In the QueryCursor event handler, you can provide custom cursors for your chart in various circumstances (e.g. when a chart is being scrolled or zoomed).


This example demonstrates how to substitute the Hand and Grab cursors shown when a chart’s area is being scrolled with a default system cursor.

To do this, handle the ChartControl.QueryCursor event, and use the QueryCursorEventArgs.Cursor and QueryCursorEventArgs.CursorType properties.

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraCharts;
// ...
private void chartControl1_QueryCursor(object sender, QueryCursorEventArgs e) {
    if (e.CursorType == CursorType.Hand || e.CursorType == CursorType.Grab) {
        e.Cursor = Cursors.Default;
