Hello,

I would like to implement a line chart which gives the user the opportunity to activate and to deactivate the crosshair with a drop-down menu. By default, the crosshair should not be visible.

The following code shows a sample script for the chart:

<div id="chart"></div>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
    $("#chart").kendoChart({
        categoryAxis: {
            categories: ["2012", "2013", "2014"],
            crosshair: {
                color: "green",
                width: 2,
                visible: false
            }
        },
        series: [{
            type: "line",
            data: [1, 2, 3]
        }]
    });
 
    function displayCrosshair() {
        var chart = $("#chart").data('kendoChart');
        chart.options.categoryAxis.crosshair.visible = true;
        chart.refresh();
    }
 
    function hideCrosshair() {
        var chart = $("#chart").data('kendoChart');
        chart.options.categoryAxis.crosshair.visible = false;
        chart.refresh();
    }
</script>

The crosshair remains invisible after calling displayCrosshair. The function only works properly if crosshair.visible has the value true:‚Äč

<script type="text/javascript">
    $("#chart").kendoChart({
        categoryAxis: {
            categories: ["2012", "2013", "2014"],
            crosshair: {
                color: "green",
                width: 2,
                visible: true
            }
        },
        series: [{
            type: "line",
            data: [1, 2, 3]
        }]
    });
</script>

How can I avoid this?

Hello Karl-Heinz,

Thank you for pointed our attention to this issue - it appears there is a bug in the current version of Kendo UI DataViz and categoryAxis.crosshair cannot be activated dynamically. I forwarded the issue to our developers for further investigation - we will do our best to address it as soon as possible. As a small sign of gratitude I updated your points.

Has this been implemented in the latest release as the steps above to change the visible property still aren't working as expected?

Hello Scott,

Currently, the supported approach to dynamically change the Chart options is to use the setOptions method:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/ui/chart#methods-setOptions

I made a Dojo example demonstrating this:
