AG Charts Enterprise adds zoom to charts to help users explore large amounts of data more easily. Users can zoom and pan using the mouse wheel, dragging on the axes or selecting an area of the chart. For all the possible options, see our documentation here.


Context Menu

AG Charts Enterprise includes a built-in Context Menu. This allows developers to add interactivity to the chart, with custom menu items based on the chart elements. This is documented here.


AG Charts Enterprise allows showing crosshairs over the chart together with floating labels over the axes at the mouse pointer location. This allows users to get the exact axis value reading at any point in the chart area, which helps precisely distinguish points which are close together. This is shown below and documented here.


Initial Load and Data Update Animation

AG Charts Enterprise adds animated charts. The charts animate on initial load and when the data is updated. This gives your users a more engaging and responsive visual experience. This is shown below and documented here.


Error Bars

AG Charts Enterprise allows adding Error Bars to chart series. This allows showing confidence intervals around points in a series, displaying your data with additional context to users. This is shown below and documented here.


Background Image

AG Charts Enterprise allows adding a background image to the chart. This is useful if you want to add branding or a watermark to your charts. This is shown below and documented here.



AG Charts 9 is an important major version - it adds many Enterprise features for a more powerful, engaging and interactive user experience. In addition, there are many improvements in performance, stability and quality of existing features.
