    To get the series information when selecting the specific series, subscribe to the seriesRegionClick event and set the selectionSettings.mode as “series”.

  • html
  • <ej-chart id="chartcontainer" (seriesRegionClick)="seriesSelection($event)" >
        <e-seriescollection>
            <e-series [selectionSettings]="{ enable: true, mode: 'series'}"> 	
            <!-- Add points here-->	
    		</e-series>		
        </e-seriescollection>
    </ej-chart>
    
       <script>
    
            function seriesSelection(sender) {
                //Get Series information on series selection
                var seriesData = sender.series;
            }
    </script>

    Selection on Load

    We can able to select the point/series programmatically on chart load, by setting series and point index in the selectedDataPointIndexes property.

  • html
  • <ej-chart id="chartcontainer" [selectedDataPointIndexes]="[
                                                         { seriesIndex:0 , pointIndex:2 },
                                                         { seriesIndex:1 , pointIndex:4 }]" >
        <e-seriescollection>
            <e-series> 	
            <!-- Add points here-->	
    		</e-series>	
            <e-series> 	
            <!-- Add points here-->	
    		</e-series>		
        </e-seriescollection>
    </ej-chart>

    Data Editing

    EjChart provides support to change the location of the rendered points. This can be done by dragging the point and dropping it on another location in chart. To enable the data editing, set the enable property to true in the dragSettings of the series.

  • html
  • <ej-chart id="container" >
            <e-seriescollection>
                <e-series [dragSettings.enable]="true" >
                </e-series>        
            </e-seriescollection>
    </ej-chart>

    Customize Dragging direction

    To drag the point along x and y axes, you can specify type as xy in dragSettings. And to drag along x axis alone, specify the type as x and to drag along y axis, specify type as y.

  • html
  • <ej-chart id="container" >
            <e-seriescollection>
                <e-series [dragSettings.type]="y" >
                </e-series>        
            </e-seriescollection>
    </ej-chart>
