Changing arrow colors on mouse hover

Postby peterkrauss » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:17 am

Is it possible to change the arrows color on mouse hover over the arrows? Thanks for any help.
On mouse hover I would like to change color for each arrows and reset to previous color when mouse leaves the arrow

this is possible, but unfortunately it seems there is a bug in the Arrow Series by which the Clicked() method is not returning the correct series point index - I have added this issue to our bug-tracking software with id=2041. However, there is a simple workaround which involves deriving a new class from the Arrow series and overriding the Clicked() method, which can be seen here:

Code: Select all
   public partial class Form1 : Form
      private MyArrow series;
      public Form1()

         series = new MyArrow(tChart1.Chart);
         tChart1.MouseMove += TChart1_MouseMove;

      int oldIndex = -1;
      private void TChart1_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
         int index = series.Clicked(e.X, e.Y);
         Color oldColor = Utils.EmptyColor;
         if (index > -1)
            oldColor = series[index].Color;
            series[index].Color = Color.Red;
            if (oldIndex > -1)
               series[oldIndex].Color = oldColor;
            oldIndex = index;


   public class MyArrow : Arrow
      public MyArrow(Chart c) : base(c) {}

      public override int Clicked(int x, int y)
         Graphics3D g = Chart.Graphics3D;
         for (int i = 0; i < Count; i++)
            Point p0 = new Point(CalcXPos(i), CalcYPos(i));
            Point p1 = new Point(CalcXPosValue(EndXValues[i]), CalcYPosValue(EndYValues[i]));

            Point[] points = g.GetArrowPoints(p0, p1, Pointer.HorizSize, Pointer.VertSize, MiddleZ, 50.0);

            if (points!= null && Graphics3D.PointInPolygon(new Point(x, y), points)) return i;

         return -1;
