public override void OnMouseMove(ChartControl chartControl, ChartPanel chartPanel, ChartScale chartScale, ChartAnchor dataPoint)
{
  // add any logic for when the mouse is moved here
  if (DrawingState == DrawingState.Moving)
  {
    //move the chart anchor when the drawing tool is in a moving state
 
    MyAnchor.MoveAnchor(lastMouseMoveAnchor, dataPoint, chartControl, chartPanel, chartScale, this);
