With the RadChart control, it is possible to get hold of the plot area and enable disable custom grid lines to identify mouse cursor position.

I want to acheive the same thing with the RadChartView.  Is it possible.  I know you have the "ChartTrackBallBehavior" facility, but I want to be able to control how it works.  e.g. I want it to remain when mouse not over the chart, and would prefer its operation to run a mouse action such as RightMouseDown.

Thanks
Craig

Hello Craig,

The current version of RadChartView does not provide built-in support for custom annotations (overlaying custom stripes (marked zones), custom gridlines, and framework elements in general over the plot area), however, this task is in our plans the for Q2 2012 release (around June).


All the best,

Thanks for the response.  

Given RadChartView is the recommended control for charting going forward, but this feature is not currently support, should I consider using RadChart?  i.e. will this control continue to be supported in the future?

Regards
Craig

Hi Craig,

RadChart control has been around for quite some time and provides rich and mature functionality that covers a large spectrum of user case scenarios.
RadChartView is a control that addresses some of the limitations and deficiencies that we have identified in the RadChart implementation over the years (we chose to implement a separate control in order not to break backwards compatibility).
There is a help topic that compares both charts and describes their most important highlights. As my colleague Giuseppe mentioned,  some of the RadChart features are not available in RadChartView yet. That's why we will continue supporting both of them and we are not planning to change this in future.
As to the custom gridlines - probably you will be mostly interested in using RadChart since annotations are supported with it.
