Telerik blogs

Hello everyone and welcome back to XAMLflix with RadTreeMap/RadPivotMap for Silverlight and WPF. What is XAMLflix you might ask? Well, it is Telerik’s way of teaching you how to use both new and existing controls from Telerik’s XAML suite. Each and every Thursday, we will provide a fresh batch of videos and sample projects highlighting a different control. Since our Silverlight and WPF share a common codebase and API, you only have to learn how to use these controls once! You can simply copy and paste the code between frameworks.

Meet RadTreeMap/RadPivotMap

The RadTreeMap/RadPivotMap control can effortlessly turn hierarchical data into meaningful representations that can be colorized and visualized to suit your needs.

  • Getting Started with RadTreeMap – In this video, we will dive into Visual Studio 2010 and begin with File -> New Project and use the RadTreeMap Control. With RadTreeMap, you can visualize large amounts of data quickly and easily. The RadTreeMap control can be bound to collections hence the data has to be converted into a tree. (source)
  • Getting Up to Speed with RadPivotMapHopefully now you understand how you can benefit from using RadTreeMap in your next application. In this video, we will dive into RadPivotMap which incorporates the same visualization technology as RadTreeMap and can also be bound to a flat data where the control automatically groups the data to be visualized.(source)
  • Adding Colors to Visualize Data in the RadTreeMap/RadPivotMap Control - In this video, we will add colors to visualize data in the RadTreeMap/RadPivotMap control. We also take a look at further customization of the control with ToolTips and more. (source)
