Property Value

The color of the highlighted range. The default value is LightGray, with an alpha value of 120.


This property determines the color of the range selection, and can be set to any valid ARGB (alpha, red, green, blue) value. If an alpha value, which determines the level of transparency, is not provided, a default alpha value of 120 is used.

The selected color can be set for both the X and Y axis cursors, which is implemented using the CursorX and CursorY properties of the ChartArea object, respectively. If a range is only selected along the X-axis, the SelectionColor value for the X-axis cursor is used; if a range is only selected along the Y-axis, the SelectionColor value for the Y-axis cursor is used. If a range is selected along both axes, the SelectionColor value for the Y-axis cursor is also used for the selected color.
