I might be a little late with blogging on the 3-dimensional capabilities of our Silverlight Chart, but you know what people say: better late than never.

So, for those of you who did not get the chance to take a look, here is direct link to our online examples:


Notice that the Flexible API example now has a checkbox “3D” that switches to Silverlight 3D (as in the WPF counterpart). If you already have experience with our Silverlight 2D charts, you will notice the common API, now available for the 3D chart as well.


Here are some screenshots:

The available Silverlight 3D chart types are: Bar, Stacked Bar, Stacked Bar 100, Area, Stacked Area, Stacked Area 100, Line, Pie and Doughnut.

These chart types were short-listed based solely on performance considerations. When rotating the chart, you will notice the dynamic lighting. We did our best to make it as close to WPF as possible. Further improvements would require hardware rasterization and the high performance calculations only a GPU is capable of.


Any feedback on the Silverlight 3D chart will be greatly appreciated.
