Built-In Axes Interactions

These interactions are for exploring charts using gestures, such as dragging to pan or scrolling to zoom. They are built into the parent axes and are available without having to select any of the buttons in the axes toolbar. Most types axes include a default set of built-in interactions, but you can customize them by setting the Interactions property of the axes.

If you do not want any of the interactions enabled, use the disableDefaultInteractivity function to disable them. To enable them if they are not already enabled, use the enableDefaultInteractivity function.
