How to Extract Graph Data information using Chart Events?


New Member

I have a Volume vs. Area plot. Here is the format of the worksheet

length | width | depth | Area | Volume

I would like to use chart events (Mouse Up event) to get me information about not only area and volume but also l, w, and d.

I know that following code give me info about x and y (i.e. area and volume.) But how to modify this code, so that I also get
"L= , W= , D= , A= , V= ."

Thanks in advance.

  With ActiveChart
        ' Pass x & y, return ElementID and Args
        .GetChartElement x, y, ElementID, Arg1, Arg2
        ' Did we click over a point or data label?
        If ElementID = xlSeries Or ElementID = xlDataLabel Then
            If Arg2 > 0 Then
                ' Extract x value from array of x values
                myX = WorksheetFunction.Index _
                    (.SeriesCollection(Arg1).XValues, Arg2)
                ' Extract y value from array of y values
                myY = WorksheetFunction.Index _
                    (.SeriesCollection(Arg1).Values, Arg2)
                ' Display message box with point information
                MsgBox "Series " & Arg1 & vbCrLf _
                    & """" & .SeriesCollection(Arg1).Name & """" & vbCrLf _
                    & "Point " & Arg2 & vbCrLf _
                    & "X = " & myX & vbCrLf _
                    & "Y = " & myY
            End If
        End If
    End With
