    Hi

    There is a Funnel Chart in WPF http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radchart-features-chart-types-3d-charts.html

    Can you please duplicate this functionality into the Silverlight library - surely it would be easy...

    And it would be so helpful.

    My manager wants me to go an buy this http://visifire.com/silverlight_funnel_pyramid_charts_gallery.php

    But I'd much rather just have one library.

    Please, please, please.

    And the PivotTable functionality for Grids would be a bonus also.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I'm under the impression that any control available for WPF is also available in Silverlight. Can you please tell me if the Funnel Chart control is available for Silverlight.

    Thanks in advance
    Dwight

    Hi Dwight,

    The funnel chart is one of the exceptions to the rule. 3D Charts are not fully ported to Silverlight because some of them have a rather complex geometry and it would not be feasible to use them with the current 3D engine implementation for silverlight. We have plans to rework our 3D in the future.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    The original request was for a Funnel Chart.. not necessarily 3d although I did use that particularly as an example since it was the only funnel chart available...

    However.. remove the 3d requirement..

    There is NO Funnel Chart available in Silverlight..

    This is a gap ... please just take the logic for the 3d WPF funnel chart and remove the 3d functions from it.. and put it into silverlight.

    Thanks

    Hi

    That's a pity as I was hoping that there would be something akin to

    This has now been removed.

    Is there a 2d or 3d Funnel coming soon?

    Hello James,

    Thank you for your interest.

    Unfortunately Funnel series type is not included in our current product backlog and will not be available as part of the Q1 2012 release. We will do our best to introduce it with Q2 2012, however, most likely Funnel 2D series type will be added as part of the new RadChartView control as we have focused most of our new development effort in this direction.

    Here are some of the most important highlights for RadChartView (currently BETA, official release for Q1 2012):
    • Performance: exceptional performance, intuitive and easy-to-use model and pixel-perfectness were some of the major tasks we have set for this new control.
      • We have separated the chart into several layers, where the core one is totally platform agnostic and is built on top of our custom logical tree. We call this layer the “View Model” of the chart.
      • We have a custom property store used within the charting logical tree. It is about 5 times faster than DependencyObject in look-up time and consumes about 3 times less memory.
      • We have an entirely custom layout and do not rely on the SL layout system to arrange our charting view models.
      • We have a stand-alone visualization layer that presents the chart view model. Every view model is presented by the simplest possible SL visual – e.g. Rectangle, Line, Polyline, etc. Still, every single aspect is fully customizable by specifying Data Templates or Styles.
      • We use Canvas – the only SL panel that does not invalidate measure automatically. When a redraw of some charting part is required, we simply update the Width, Height and Canvas.Left, Canvas.Top properties of the corresponding visual. A simple test proved that calling InvalidateMeasure of the canvas upon a change the in view model degrades performance about 10 times.
    • Architecture: a number of chart controls built for a specific purpose vs one monolith control (provides cleaner, simpler, and relevant API)
      • RadCartesianChart -- hosts Bar, Area, Line, Spline, SplineArea, ScatterPoint, Candlestick, and OHLC series types (and their horizontal & stacked / stacked100 equivalents where applicable).
      • RadPieChart -- hosts Pie series type.
      • RadPolarChart -- hosts PolarLine, PolarArea, PolarPoint, RadarLine, RadarArea, RadarPoint series types.
    • Notable features
      • Financial indicators -- support for about 20 most common financial indicators to complement the data visualization for all cartesian series types.
      • Extended DateTime support built-in in the axes' logic
        • DateTimeCategoricalAxis -- Specialized categorical axis that expects each data point to provide a System.DateTime structure as its value for this axis. The points are grouped by a user-defined date-time component (Year, Month, Day, etc.) and then the groups are sorted chronologically.
        • DateTimeContinuousAxis -- Specialized axis that expects each data point to provide a System.DateTime structure as its value for this axis. May be thought of as a timeline where the coordinate of each data point is calculated depending on the position of its associated DateTime on the timeline. The base unit (or the timeline step) of the axis is calculated depending on the smallest difference between any two dates.
      • Support for linear and logarithmic axes.
      • Built-in data sampling (with extended DateTime awareness)
      • Behaviors:
        • PanAndZoom Behavior -- with smooth scrolling support.
        • TrackBall Behavior (also known as current value indicator) 
        • ToolTip Behavior
        • Selection Behavior

    Hi Albert,

    I am afraid that Funnel series are not available in the latest release. However I have prepared a workaround which you might find useful. Please check the attached proejct. I have also attached a screenshot of the end result.
