Hello,

I have an indicator with a click event defined on the ChartControl:

 
Code
ChartControl.ChartPanel.MouseUp += new MouseEventHandler(myMouseEvents);

private void myMouseEvents(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    TriggerCustomEvent(new CustomEvent(myCustomEvent), e);
}
Does anybody know if there is a possibility to find out if the click happened in the main chart window or if it happened in a sub-panel? I am able to get the x y coordinates of the click and also the size of the ChartPanel but i didnt found a possibility to find out how many sub panels are present.

Thank you,
mike

Did you try in checking with the parent object of sender?
I have a similar indicator but I only used it with a single panel, I'll take a look if it's possible when I have a minute.

i just found a simple solution by using the bounds form the Plot method.
so i simply check if e.Y is between the top and bottom bounds to find out if the click event was fired by the current panel.

cheers,
mike

I assumed you already though about this solution and didn't used it as it was not the "cleanest" way to do it, but I was wrong . And if it works, let it be!
