ComponentOne FlexChart for UWP
Range Selector
FlexChart > Working with FlexChart > End-User Interaction > Range Selector

While scrollbars are a traditional way of scrolling the chart, Range Selector is a more modern approach, which lets the user visualize where the selected range sits in the complete data range.

FlexChart's Range Selector lets you select a range of numeric data with lower value thumb and upper value thumb. These thumbs define the start and end values of the range. On dragging the thumb towards left (or down) on the range bar, you reduce its value, and dragging it towards the right (or up) increases the value on the range bar.

In FlexChart, you can add Range Selector by creating an instance of the C1.Xaml.Chart.Interaction.C1RangeSelector class. The C1RangeSelector class inherits the C1.Xaml.C1RangeSlider class. You can use the LowerValue and the UpperValue property provided by C1RangeSlider to set the lower and the upper value of the range selector respectively. The ValueChanged event fires when any of the LowerValue or the UpperValue property is changed.

To set the horizontal or the vertical orientation of the range selector, you can use the Orientation property. When the property is changed, the OrientationChanged event fires.

Here is the code snippet showing the implementation:

    <Interaction:C1RangeSelector x:Name="rangeSelector" ValueChanged="OnRangeSelectorValueChanged"/>
Copy Code
void OnRangeSelectorValueChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    chartPrecipitation.AxisX.Min = rangeSelector.LowerValue;
    chartPrecipitation.AxisX.Max = rangeSelector.UpperValue;
    chartPressure.AxisX.Min = rangeSelector.LowerValue;
    chartPressure.AxisX.Max = rangeSelector.UpperValue;
    chartTemperature.AxisX.Min = rangeSelector.LowerValue;
    chartTemperature.AxisX.Max = rangeSelector.UpperValue;

Copy Code
Sub OnRangeSelectorValueChanged(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs)
    chartPrecipitation.AxisX.Min = rangeSelector.LowerValue
    chartPrecipitation.AxisX.Max = rangeSelector.UpperValue
    chartPressure.AxisX.Min = rangeSelector.LowerValue
    chartPressure.AxisX.Max = rangeSelector.UpperValue
    chartTemperature.AxisX.Min = rangeSelector.LowerValue
    chartTemperature.AxisX.Max = rangeSelector.UpperValue
End Sub
