Every Wednesday we publish a new tutorial based on the XAMLFlix video series. This gives you the same information as the video, but in a searchable text form.
This week we are looking at RadDataBars. RadDataBars are a very useful way to display information about relative sizes and percentages. RadDataBars come in three flavors:
The RadDataBar reflects a single value, typically as a horizontal bar.
The RadStackedDataBar reflects a series of values and their relative sizes, one stacked upon another .
The RadStacked100DataBar is much like the RadStackedDataBar except that it is sized to fill the entire provided area -- each value given a percentage of the available space.
In this tutorial we show not only how to create and use these RadDataBars but also how to customize them, how to add a scale and how to modify the colors used in their display.

As you can see, it is quick and easy to use the RadDataBar in your line-of-business application.
And remember! RadDataBar is only one of the controls offered in the Silverlight/WPF suite.
