Synchronized crosshairs across multiple chart panes


Is it possible to have synchronized crosshairs for the category axis when there are two or more chart panes in the same chart?

The desired effect I would like to have would look something like this (attached in kendo crosshair.png). Even better if a tooltip can also appear in the other chart pane at the same time (the one not being hovered over).

So far, I have seen that this isn't possible based on this post elated post for jQuery: https://www.telerik.com/forums/stacked-plot-with-separate-y-axis


What I have tried so far to no avail is to take the chart's plotAreaHoverEvent: https://www.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/components/charts/api/PlotAreaHoverEvent/, grab the instance of the chart (event.sender) and try to look for a way to make the other chart pane's crosshair appear, but it appears this isn't doable as the crosshair appears to only be rendered when the mouse enters the chart pane area.

Hi Denise,

Thank you for the provided screenshot and details.

Indeed, at the moment there isn't an option to control the crosshairs of a chart manually. Thus enabling the corsshairs is possible only when the cursor is inside the actual Chart. In order to provide such functionality in a future release of Kendo UI we will need to log a feature request which should gather a substantial amount of votes. That is why I converted this ticket to be a public feature request:


so that we can track its demand. That will help us to prioritize our future development plans. Please feel free to add any additional details to the required functionality by commenting. Thank you.
