    Hi.  I have a trackball setup on a chart.

    chart.Controllers.Add(new ChartTrackballController());
    chart.ShowTrackBall = false;

    I have a click handler that toggles the trackball. 

    private void chart_MouseClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        if (e.Button == System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right)
            chart.ShowTrackBall = !chart.ShowTrackBall;

    When I disable the trackball it leaves its message box on the screen...  If I toggle the trackball a bunch of times, I end up with a bunch of message boxes on the screen... 

    See the pix for a sample.

    Thoughts? -

    Hello Scott,

    Thank you for writing.

    I was able to reproduce the issue and have logged it in our Public Issue Tracking System - PITS. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment on the following link - PITS Issue. 
    To workaround this issue you can create a custom trackball controller deriving from the default one. In the custom controller you should override the ControllerRemoved method. Your code might look like this:
    public class MyTrackballController : ChartTrackballController
        protected override void ControllerRemoved()
            ChartView view = this.Area.Parent as ChartView;
            ChartWrapper chartWrapper = view.Owner as ChartWrapper;
            if (chartWrapper.Children.Contains(this.Element))

    You will also have to modify your click event handler to use your custom controller:
    private void radChartView1_MouseClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        if (e.Button == System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right)
            if (this.radChartView1.ShowTrackBall)
                this.radChartView1.ShowTrackBall = false;
                this.radChartView1.Controllers.Add(new MyTrackballController());
    I have also updated your Telerik points for bringing this issue to our attention.

    I hope this will help. Feel free to write back with any further questions.

    Kind regards,
