Hi, currently in my application, when mouse over the data point, the line will be selected. If mouse over the line, the line will not be selected. Is there any way to know that the line is mouse over and make the line selected?

Hi Sim,

We’re actually writing now some code to perform this interpolation for you for our next release. The new API will become:

// with interpolate = false, hit-tests data-points. With true, hit-tests the actual line (or area for Mountain, etc)
var hitTestResult = FastLineRenderableSeries.HitTest(Point pt, bool interpolate); 

This APi will then be used in our SeriesSelectionModifier to improve the selection on click of all series types.

How quickly do you need this feature?

    Hi Andrew, I hope that by end of this Nov can receive this feature. However, this is not the top priority in the list. Thanks.

Update: Using SciChart v3.0 APIs

We now have a number of APIs which will allow you to do Hit-Testing operations, such as getting a notification of mouse-hover, mouse-click selection of a series.

Please see the following KB articles:

Hope this helps!
