I have a chart control that looks like the embedded picture.  What I need to do is click on the account description on the chart, and have it change the account combo box on the bottom or better yet get rid of the combo box and just click on the chart account description and have it update the data grid with the new data.  Just not sure how to capture which description was clicked if that's possible, so I can do the rest of the code to fill the grid.

thanks in advance

Hi,
assuming you use the .NET 3.5 chart control, you can set image maps onto the chart elements.
Some good examples are available on codeplex in the charting controls library:

Run the sample web site and go to the interactivity section.

Not sure if this is the way they do it in the samples, but this works for me:
    Private Sub Chart1_Customize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Chart1.Customize
        For Each lbl As CustomLabel In Chart1.ChartAreas(0).AxisX.CustomLabels
            lbl.PostBackValue = lbl.Text
        Next
    End Sub

    Private Sub Chart1_Click(sender As Object, e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ImageMapEventArgs) Handles Chart1.Click
        DoSomethingWith(e.PostBackValue) ' the text of the label that was clicked
    End Sub

Open in new window
