in highchart forum there is an example of draggable points,

i can assume they used the jQuery draggable

can i use that option while creating the chart from an MVC platform coding with c#?,

and my bigger question is:

any possibility that dragging a point will drag the entire following series? 
meaning from the example:

if i drag down march in 20 points then march through december will all go down 20 point?

it will change the entire series from the dragged point to the end of the series.

iv made some changes to the script so you can drag entire series,

after you drop a point all the consecutive dots move as well, to move the entire series you can move the first dot.

naturally iv tried to move all the dots with the draggable dot by putting the call to moveConsecutiveDots in the mousemove event and not the mouse drop but i got some weird behavior...

Great work with the drag option but I do have a question how to use it with DotNetHighcharts.  After we call all the appropriate DotNetHighchart functions in code behind and the chart gets rendered to the browser, how are we able to set the drag option using Javascript?  I have looked around and can't see how to set options at runtime, only where initializing the chart.

Thanks for your time.

naturally your gonna need to replace the script file to the new one, you can see more here

in the end I just modified the source code to add DraggableY to the class PlotOptionsSeries, eg.


namespace DotNet.Highcharts.Options
    /// <summary>
    /// General options for all series types.
    /// </summary>
    public class PlotOptionsSeries


        public bool? DraggableY { get; set; }
