Hi,

I am working with the telerik bar chart and pie chart. And by looking at an example I set the series interactivity as such:

For a bar chart:
DataSeries barSeries = modelDictionary[ChartType.Bar];
            barSeries.Definition.InteractivitySettings.HoverScope = InteractivityScope.Item;
            barSeries.Definition.InteractivitySettings.SelectionScope = InteractivityScope.Item;
     
For a pie chart:
  DataSeries pieSeries = modelDictionary[ChartType.Pie];
            pieSeries.LegendLabel = "Pie Series";
            pieSeries.Definition = new PieSeriesDefinition();
            pieSeries.Definition.InteractivitySettings.HoverScope = InteractivityScope.Item;
            pieSeries.Definition.InteractivitySettings.SelectionScope = InteractivityScope.Item;
            pieSeries.Definition.InteractivitySettings.SelectionMode = ChartSelectionMode.Single;
The interactivity does not work when I do a mouse hover.

Hello Farhan,

The interactivity effects feature is supported for WPF4 projects only -- could you confirm you are using the WPF4 controls binaries in your application?
 

Kind regards,

I am using .NET 3.5 but would really like to have the interactivity on my charts. Is there a way I could create a wrapper or interface and expose the interactivity in my WPF 3.5 project.

Thanks,
Farhan

Hi Farhan,

Unfortunately that would not be possible as the interactivity feature relies on functionality that is not available in WPF3.5 (VisualStateManager) at all.

The VisualStateManager is available within the WPFToolKit. If I can leverage it, won't I still be able to use the interactivity features?

Hi Farhan,

The preprocessor directives that fork the WPF3.5 / WPF4 interactivity flow of execution are part of the chart source code itself and you cannot extend this functionality externally. Theoretically you can modify the source code itself and try to leverage the VisualStateManager from the toolkit (given that you have valid subscription for the RadControls suite) but note that we do not provide technical support for such scenarios.

I have the following code for a bar chart which displays the chart correctly, but there is no hover effect and I can't select a specific bar item from the chart.

<chart:RadChart Name="BarChart"
                                Content=""
                                Margin="5"
                                ItemsSource="{Binding CommunicationChartData}"
                                telerik:StyleManager.Theme="{Binding SelectedTheme}">
                    <chart:RadChart.SeriesMappings>
                        <charting:SeriesMapping ChartAreaName="ChartArea1" >
                            <charting:SeriesMapping.SeriesDefinition>
                                <charting:BarSeriesDefinition>
                                    <charting:BarSeriesDefinition.InteractivitySettings>
                                        <charting:InteractivitySettings SelectionMode="Single"
                                                                        HoverScope="Item"
                                                                        SelectionScope="Item" />
                                    </charting:BarSeriesDefinition.InteractivitySettings>
                                </charting:BarSeriesDefinition>
                            </charting:SeriesMapping.SeriesDefinition>
                            <charting:SeriesMapping.ItemMappings>
                                <charting:ItemMapping FieldName="Type"
                                                      DataPointMember="XCategory" />
                                <charting:ItemMapping FieldName="Count"
                                                      DataPointMember="YValue" />
                            </charting:SeriesMapping.ItemMappings>
                        </charting:SeriesMapping>
                    </chart:RadChart.SeriesMappings>
                    <chart:RadChart.DefaultView>
                        <charting:ChartDefaultView>
                            <charting:ChartDefaultView.ChartTitle>
                                <charting:ChartTitle Content=""
                                                     FontSize="14"
                                                     HorizontalAlignment="Stretch"></charting:ChartTitle>
                            </charting:ChartDefaultView.ChartTitle>
                            <charting:ChartDefaultView.ChartLegend>
                                <charting:ChartLegend Name="legend1"
                                                      Visibility="Visible" />
                            </charting:ChartDefaultView.ChartLegend>
                            <charting:ChartDefaultView.ChartArea>
                                <charting:ChartArea ItemClick="BarChartArea_ItemClick"
                                                    x:Name="ChartArea1"
                                                ItemWidthPercent="30"
                                                LegendName="legent1"
                                                SmartLabelsEnabled="True" />
                            </charting:ChartDefaultView.ChartArea>
                        </charting:ChartDefaultView>
                    </chart:RadChart.DefaultView>
                </chart:RadChart>

Hello Pabitra,

Please remove the Content="" property setter from the RadChart declaration and interactivity will work as expected.

Hope this helps.
