Note "Notes"
This sample program demonstrates a track cursor programmed as a crosshair cursor with axis labels. The code first draws the chart. We hide tracking if mouse is out of plotarea. The track cursor is configured to automatically hide itself when the mouse leaves the plot area. The crossHair method is the routine that draws the track cursor. Its key elements are: * To draw dynamic contents on the chart, the code obtains the DrawArea object for drawing on the dynamic layer of the chart using BaseChart.initDynamicLayer. * The code draws a vertical line (using DrawArea.vline) and a horizontal line (using DrawArea.hline) at the mouse cursor position. This creates the crosshair. * The code also draws x and y axis labels using DrawArea.text.
