    I saw this demo using dundas silverlight charting.  Any ideas on how to generate this using Telerik Silverlight controls.

    Do you have a link as an example?

    EDIT:
    I'm betting you're looking at this example: http://demos6.dundas.com/Silverlight/

    I don't see any reason why that same idea couldn't be done with with Telerik controls.  You'd basically create a custom control that housed each measure you were watching and using the Telerik controls to visualize the data, use a drag and drop control to handle that part of the interface, and write some logic to handle the grid restructuring as needed when things are added to the dashboard.  I don't think it would be very complicated to do at all. Its a nice visualization of the the capabilities of Dundas Charts, but the actual dashboard control and interface is more of a custom job that just implements them.

    I'll see if I might can recreate something similar using Telerik in the next day or so and post it up.  I could use it on an upcoming project anyway.

    Hello Taylor,

    Your bet is right.  I don't know how I missed posting that link - http://demos6.dundas.com/Silverlight/

    Thanks for the explanation as well.  If you do create a similar interface and share it, that will be a great contribution.

    Pratik,

    I made a quick pass at this today.  Didn't get too far, but it handles the drag and drop, and adds the chart to the page.  At the moment, its not resizing the graph to the correct size (there are 4 set drop areas), but I don't think that would be too much work past what I'm doing now.  Its a start anyway.  

    It was my first time playing with the drag and drop controls so most of that code stucture is based off the Telerik demos.  You'll see I have 4 custom UserControls: BarGraph, BarGraph2, LineGraph, LineGraph2.  These controls could be any telerik control and be tied to any data source, I just went the easy route for the quick example.

    Hope this helps and I'll probably take a look at this again to make it much cleaner and hold some more functionality, but there are some other pressing projects I need to do first.


    To Telerik:
    Is there an easier way to share files on the forum?  Right now I've uploaded this to my photography site, but I wasn't sure if we were able to post sample projects in some way or not.

    Hello Taylor,

    Our policy does not allow attaching files to forum posts. Allowing this might result in offensive content, which most of the community members would not appreciate. There is a number of free file sharing services out there, so we believe anyone can find a solution in user-to-user communication cases like this.

    For sending files to Telerik feel free to open a support ticket. If you have an interesting implementation involving RadControls, which might help other users in certain scenarios, you can post a project to our Code Library. Thank you for your understanding on the matter.

    Sincerely,
    Ves
    the Telerik team

    Thank you Taylor for putting this sample together.  This looks really good.

    I appreciate the time you put into this sample.  I think this would be a great sample to build upon inside the Telerik Code Library as several users can use this interface.
