    RadMap for Silverlight – How To Consume Tiles from Local Server

    Currently RadMap supports three built-in map providers: Bing Maps, Open Street Maps and Empty provider. The empty provider does not show any map tiles. It just provides spatial reference (projection) for other operations (i.e. KML or ESRI shape files). The Bing Maps and Open Street Map providers read their tile images from internet. Of course a browser can use these images from its cache, but the Bing Maps provider requires internet connection because it uses a WCF service to get URLs of the tile images. It is a common scenario that the map...

    Create Blood Pressure Chart with RadChart for Silverlight

    This blog post will demonstrate how to achieve blood pressure graph visualization with the use of a RangeBar Chart type. Blood pressure is measured as two separate values - systolic (maximum) and diastolic (minimum). A common way to visualize these measures is a vertical bar with an arrow pointing the systolic (maximum) and an up arrow for the diastolic (minimum) respectively. It is measured several times over a period, as it’s important (from a clinical standpoint) to track any change in the values. For the purpose the default RangeBar’s Style is retemplated. The Width of the Bars (“PART_DefiningGeometry”) is reduced so that...
