ChartDirector 6.2 (.NET Edition)

Zooming and Scrolling with Viewport Control (Web)




NOTE: This section describes Zooming and Scrolling with Viewport Control for web applications only. For Windows applications, please refer to Zooming and Scrolling with Viewport Control (Windows).

NOTE: For conciseness, some of the following descriptions only mention WebChartViewer and WebViewPortControl. Those descriptions apply to RazorChartViewer and RazorViewPortControl as well.

The example extends the Zooming and Scrolling with Track Line (Web) example by adding a WebViewPortControl to visualize and control the viewport, and a button to download the chart as PDF.

Most of the code in this example is similar to that in the Zooming and Scrolling with Track Line (Web) example. The key changes are:
