    Hello Support,

                <telerik:ChartTrackBallBehavior ShowIntersectionPoints="True" TrackInfoUpdated="ChartTrackBallBehavior_TrackInfoUpdated" />
                <telerik:ChartSelectionBehavior DataPointSelectionMode="Single" SelectionChanged="RadChart1_SelectionChanged" />

    <!-- This code does not work, when i click on all of the points on the line, i never have the event triggered  -->
             <telerik:ScatterLineSeries ItemsSource="{Binding LineProfileDataValues}"
                                      YValueBinding="RedBandOrMonoValue" XValueBinding="PixelNumber" Stroke="Red" Width=".5" TrackBallTemplate="{StaticResource trackBallTemplateR}" IsHitTestVisible="True">

    <!-- If i simple change from a LineSeries to a ScatterPointSeries, then the event is triggered and everything works correctly  -->
             <telerik:ScatterPointSeries ItemsSource="{Binding LineProfileDataValues}"
                                      YValueBinding="RedBandOrMonoValue" XValueBinding="PixelNumber" TrackBallTemplate="{StaticResource trackBallTemplateR}" IsHitTestVisible="True">

    Hi Kevin,

    Most of the Cartesian chart's series have a default visual that represents their data points. For example, a Border element for the bar series and a Path for the point series. You can modify this visual element through the DefaultVisualStyle property of the series. You can also replace this default visual with custom element through the series' PoinTemplate property. However, the line series (like the LineSeries and ScatterLineSeries) does not have such visual, or in other words there is no element that physically represents the data point.

    On the other hand the SelectionBehavior works with the data point's visual element to select the data point. The ScatterLineSeries does not have a visual and this is why the SelectionChanged event is never called. To resolve this you can define a PointTemplate for the ScatterLineSeries.

    Here is an example:
                <Ellipse Fill="Red" Width="15" Height="15" />

    Please try this and let me know if it works for you.
