Examples

The following code example creates a Chart with a handler for the MouseDown event that displays the coordinates of the mouse pointer in cell D14 when the mouse button is pressed while the pointer is over the chart.

private void DisplayMouseDown()
{
    this.Range["A1", "A5"].Value2 = 22;
    this.Range["B1", "B5"].Value2 = 55;

    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Chart chart1 =
        this.Controls.AddChart(this.Range["D2", "H12"], 
        "chart1");
    chart1.SetSourceData(this.Range["A1", "B5"], 
        Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns);
    chart1.ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xl3DColumn;

    chart1.MouseDown +=
        new Excel.ChartEvents_MouseDownEventHandler(
        chart1_MouseDown);
}

void chart1_MouseDown(int Button, int Shift, int x, int y)
{
    this.Range["D14"].Value2 = "The chart was clicked at" +
        " coordinates " + x.ToString() + ", " + y.ToString();
}
WithEvents MouseDownChart As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Chart

Private Sub DisplayMouseDown()
    Me.Range("A1", "A5").Value2 = 22
    Me.Range("B1", "B5").Value2 = 55

    MouseDownChart = Me.Controls.AddChart(Me.Range("D2", "H12"), _
        "MouseDownChart")
    MouseDownChart.SetSourceData(Me.Range("A1", "B5"), _
        Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns)
    MouseDownChart.ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xl3DColumn
End Sub

Sub MouseDownChart_MouseDown(ByVal Button As Integer, _
    ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal x As Integer, _
    ByVal y As Integer) Handles MouseDownChart.MouseDown

    Me.Range("D14").Value2 = _
        "The chart was clicked at coordinates " _
