Using effects with charts

Chart controls support the standard Flex effects such as Zoom and Fade. You can use these effects to make the entire chart control zoom in or fade out in your applications. In addition, chart data series support the following effect classes that apply to the data in the chart:

These effects zoom or slide the chart items inside the chart control. These classes are in the mx.charts.effects.effects.* package. The base class for chart effects is SeriesEffect.

All chart controls and series support the standard Flex triggers and effects that are inherited from UIComponent. These triggers include focusInEffect, focusOutEffect, moveEffect, showEffect, and hideEffect. The charting controls also include the showDataEffect and hideDataEffect triggers.
