How it works

When several event markers are bound to the same date they may be merged to avoid the mess on the chart and they are expanded when user clicks on the group of merged markers. The group of merged markers fires several special events (listed below), that can be handled to obtain information about the merged group.

In this sample these events are handled and information obtained is displayed in Event Log.

You can read more about event markers in Event Markers section and find full list of available events and handling guide in Events Handling article.
