    It's a control on ASP.NET, will it be available for Winforms at some point?

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for writing. 

    For the time being we do not have plans for introducing such control. Me personally, do not see a use case where this can be applied. Can you please share your use case with us?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes I can... 
    I'm working on a ticket support system with several clients being developed. Outlook add-in, windows and web clients and a WebAPI. We're implementing ITIL support to our system and types of data like Workarounds/Solutions and Question Trees would be relevant to show this way... High ranking workarounds are shown larger than others and so on...
    It's possible on our webclient, would be nice to have the same thing in Telerik, which we use extensively... Now our only option is to take in other 3rd party controls for this.
    Don't hesitate to ask any further questions

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Currently, I can offer to create a component that will serve your needs. Attached you can find a small sample demonstrating how this can be done. Basically, I have created a control which has a single element (TagCloudElement) and a few properties. In the element, I am using a WrapLayoutPanel which will hold RadLabelElements. There is also an Items property in both the control and the element. This property should be set to a List<TagCloudDataItem>. Once set, I read the data items, calculate their font height and add a label with the desired height. The labels will also turn blue when hovered and will open the TagCloudDataItem upon click. 

    I hope that you will get the idea and will be able to improve the component to serve your needs. Should I be able to help you with this task, please let me know.

    Regards,
    Stefan

    I'm sorry, don't see the attachment...

    But the idea seems plausible for a solution, will try it out... As soon as I find the sample... :)

    Thanks Stefan!

    Looks like a good start... I'll convert it to VB.NET and play around with it... :)
