    Hi,

    I want to implement an anchor(which can be multiple as well) in a chart.
    Anchors can also be defined as a fixed marker (like trackball) which shows details of x & y axis
    Anchors can be added/removed/moved as per the user's action in the chart.

    Also another anchor can be added in the same chart, which should display the difference as it moves through the X-axis with respect to 1st anchor.

    Please advise how can I achieve this using Telerik Silverlight Chart Control

    Thanks.

    Hello Nitin,

    I am unsure if your question targets the old RadChart or the new RadChartView. In general we would suggest using the ChartView as it has a higher performance rate and is generally more flexible.

    I am also unsure what you mean by anchors. Do you mean annotations? Check our online examples (here). Perhaps you can achieve this scenario with the custom annotations. If you need further assistance I will ask that you provide us with a snapshot of the desired result.

    All the best,

    Hi Petar,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I have been working on new RadChartView. (To fulfill the requirement of Anchors, I would use any kind of telerik chart.)

    I have attached an image which describes what an anchor means to me.

    Please tell me a solution with Silverlight Telerik RadChartView.

    Thanks,
    Nitin R

    Hi Nitin,

    As mentioned previously, you can use the annotations of the ChartView. For the lines - you can use the CartesianGridLineAnnotation, and for the text block you can use a CartesianCustomAnnotation. Example here.
