Hello again!

I’m working with FastBandRenderableSeries and I’ve got some questions:
1) Is there any method to make the area between the lines of FastBandRenderableSeries not visible for hit?
2) When I’m using HitTest method , like this selectedSeries.HitTest(e.MousePoint, true), it returns true of IsHit property, when we click on the line of FastBandRenderableSeries and on the area between lines. How can I detect that hit was made only on a line, not not an area ?(Maybe this question connected to the the first question)

Thanks in advance

Great Answer

Hi there,

If you take a look at the members on the HitTestInfo Struct (which is returned from BaseRenderableSeries.HitTest), you can see the HitTestPoint, which gives the location (in pixels) of the nearest X,Y data-point.

If your mouse point is more than say 5 pixels away from the HitTestPoint, you can safely say the user clicked the polygon, not the line.

Does it help?

Best regards,

    Yes, thanks, it works. But there is still one question: is there any way not to select FastBandRenderableSeries when clicking on area, because when we click on their area these series go forward?

    Selection only occurs if you are using the SeriesSelectionModifier, or if you set RenderableSeries.IsSelected = true. If you just want a hit-test (notification of mouse over area), please call BaseRenderableSeries.HitTest and check the HitTestInfo struct returned. This should not select the series. Best regards, Andrew

    Yes, you are right. I'm using SeriesSelectionModifier to select series. Sorry that I haven't warned you about that fact. What should I modify in the modifier to make it not selecting FastBandRenderableSeries when clicking on area?

    Hi Egor, I gave you the answer above :) You need to use the Hit-Test API:
