Selected DataMarker color for Line chart

Hi Syncfusion Team!

We have a Line series, which have DataMarker properties, ShowLabel="False" and ShowMarker="True". Our question is, the selected data marker color does not change on tap on data marker. We have enabled DataPointSelection and assigned color to SelectedDataPointColor property. The selected color is only reflected to Label marker of chart if ShowLabel is set to true. Is there any way to highlight the selected data marker "circle"?

Hi Sajid,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

In our SfChart, currently we don’t have support to change the DataMarker symbol color on selection. But, we can achieve your requirement by using ScatterSeries with EnableDataPointSelection and give same ItemsSource for both LineSeries and ScatterSeries as shown in the below code snippet.


var line = new LineSeries


    ItemsSource = Data,


var scatter = new ScatterSeries


    Opacity                   = 1,

    Color                       = Color.Blue,

    ScatterHeight          = 10,

    ScatterWidth           = 10,

    ItemsSource            = Data,

    EnableDataPointSelection  = true,

    SelectedDataPointColor     = Color.Red,

    SelectedDataPointIndex     = 3



We have prepared a sample based on requirement. Please download the sample from the following location.
