    Adding C1OrgChart to the Application
    In This Topic

    Complete the following steps to add a C1OrgChart control to your application:

    1. From the Visual Studio File menu select New and choose Project.
    2. In the New Project dialog box choose a language in the left-side menu, choose .NET Framework 4 in the Framework drop-down list, and enter a name for the project.
    3. In the Solution Explorer, right-click the project name and choose Add Reference. In the Add Reference dialog box, locate and select the following assemblies and click OK to add references to your project:
      • C1.WPF and C1.WPF.OrgChart or
      • C1.Silverlight and C1.Silverlight.OrgChart
    4. Open the XAML view of the MainWindow.xaml file and add the XAML namespace to the Window tag with the following markup: xmlns:c1="".

      The namespaces will now appear similar to the following:

      Copy Code
      <Window x:Class="MainWindow"
          Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">

      This is a unified namespace that will enable you to work with most of the WPF and Silverlight Edition controls without adding multiple namespaces.

    5. Add the <c1:C1OrgChart x:Name="C1OrgChart1" /> tag within the Grid tags on the page to add the C1OrgChart control to the application.

      The XAML will appear similar to the following:

      Copy Code
      <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
          <c1:C1OrgChart x:Name="C1OrgChart1" />

      This will add a C1OrgChart control named "C1OrgChart1" to the application.

    You've successfully set up your application, but if you run your application now you'll see that application is currently blank.

    Note: If the C1OrgChart control was installed to the Visual Studio Toolbox, simply dragging the control onto a page will automatically perform all the steps above.
