Rectangular selection

DragXY, DragX and DragY

To fetch a collection of data under a particular region, you have to set selectionMode as DragXY.

  • DragXY - Allow us to select data with respect to both horizontal and vertical axis.
  • DragX - Allow us to select data with respect to horizontal axis.
  • DragY - Allow us to select data with respect to vertical axis.

The selected data’s are returned as an array collection in the dragComplete event.
