PageMap.GetTracker Method

Convert points to status message giving x and y in user-space.

public string GetTracker(
    double x,
    double y
Cursor-x in points.
Cursor-y in points.
return value
Co-ordinates formatted in user-space.


This takes note of the axis type, so will (for example) correctly represent the cursor position as a date for timeseries charts. A typical result for a scatterplot would be “x:234 y:12.7” where the mouse position is translated to axis values, rounded off to 3 significant figures. Dates are shown in the standard ‘short-date’ style unless you give your own format string.
