Intensity map: is it possible to get an X-Y Crosshair?

Post by greggorob64 » Thu Mar 27, 2014 2:08 pm

I'm working at creating a stacked intensity map shown below:

My project requires of me that we have both an X and a Y crosshair. This is needed to so that we can extrapolate crosssections to be displayed on the bottom and the right of the screen.

Is this possible using the crosshiar API we have here, or do I have to manually draw a line on the screen?

The built-in crosshair functionality of LineSeriesCursor can't be used for this directly, as it works only for series PointLineSeries, SampleDataSeries, AreaSeries and HighlowSeries. I'm suggesting using ConstantLines as horizontal line (s). For vertical line, you can use LineSeriesCursor as you do now.

Thanks for the response. I think the Movable XY plane surface-map example you have should give me a good start for getting an XY crosshair.
