In addition to the default mouse behaviour, when the mouse drags on the plot area, the mouse cursor will change to a scroll cursor, the viewport coordinates will shift to reflect the amount dragged, and ViewPortChanged events will be fired.
cvScrollOnDrop2The mouse is used for drag scrolling the chart.

In addition to the default mouse behaviour, when the mouse drags on the plot area, the mouse cursor will change to a scroll cursor, and a selection rectangle representing the shifted plot area will be displayed to reflect the amount dragged.
