    In WinForms I created a user control from scratch. The control is a bar (not a progress bar) indicating the volume peaks of music that is playing.

    The control has a back color (or a background image) and three color to indicate the level.

    Below a certain level, the active bars turn green (for instance). When a second level (say 50%) is reached, the indicator bars go from green to yellow. When the highest threshold is reached, the indicator bars go from green over yellow to red.  In fact it is something very common seen in several multimedia situations.  The attached image should clarify the situation. On the image, the level is set at 90%.

    I was wondering how to achieve this in Silverlight. Can I use a Telerik control to start from or do I have to do it from scratch again? I hope someone can point me in the right direction because I haven’t got a clue on how to start.

    Thank you very much,
