I only want to move the RolloverModifier if the left mouse button is pressed and with Left and Right Keys?

Hi Daniel,

I’m afraid we don’t support moving the rollover line by key-press, but we do have a rich Custom ChartModifier API where you can create or customise your own ChartModifiers.

I recommend having a look at Custom ChartModifiers – Part 1 – Creating a Custom Rollover Modifier as well as the second part of this article Zooming In / Out on Key Presses as this may give some inspiration.

Alternatively, you may find it better to use our built in VerticalSliceModifier to display a ‘rollover line’ and then subscribe to key presses on the parent window to move it (update its position) instead of use a Rollover line.

Hope this helps. If you find a good solution, please post it below so it can help others!

Best regards,

    Thanks, but i'm not able to trigger any event of the sciChart or ChartModifier. Is the Chart focusable?? If yes, how can i trigger GotFocus,etc..

    Hi Daniel, it's a known issue that the chart cannot accept Key events. We have it in our backlog. For now, I'd suggest taking a look at the Zooming In / Out on Keypresses sample above, which subscribes to events in the parent window
