Charting with Multiple Plot Areas

Stacking plot areas within a chart can be a useful way to better analyze the data points. Rather than having many data series overlapped you can increase readability by moving some series to an adjacent plot area. This can all be achieved using the advanced capabilities of the ComponentOne Chart for XAML.

Using a Custom CellFactory in MVVM Scenarios

The scenario is simple: a user wants to customize the way the FlexGrid displays information based on its state. For instance, when a row is collapsed it should display as one style, and when it’s expanded it should display as another style. How can you achieve this type of logic in the XAML world while still obeying the laws of MVVM? The answer is very simple: use a Cell Factory.

Extending Time Functions in C1Report

Custom PrintDialog in WPF C1DocumentViewer

When document with landscape layout is printed on a physical printer using the C1DocumentViewer, it is always printed as portrait. The orientation can only be changed manually when user selects the print orientation as Landscape in the printdialog. The issue is mainly because of the inherent MS DocumentViewer and there  aren't a lot of options to customize the default printdialog that pops up when print button is clicked. However, no issue is observed while printing on XPS printer.

Transposed FlexGrid (WPF & Silverlight)

There are times when user wants to see data as transposed i.e vertical rows and horizontal columns in grid. The simplest way to do this is use the DataTable object as the ItemsSource and transpose the data itself there.

Working with the new TimeLine Scheduler View

First Look at C1OutlookBar

One of our new controls in the 2011 v3 release is the C1OutlookBar in Studio for Silverlight and WPF. This control also goes by the name of C1NavBar in our Studio for WinForms. We found that "OutlookBar" was a more accurate and community-accepted name so we decided to go with this one in the XAML platforms. With C1OutlookBar, you can exactly replicate the navigation pane in Microsoft Outlook 2007 and 2010. See a live demo.

One of those whistles is easy data filtering. The control has evolved over the past few years and so has its filtering features. The C1DataGrid supports several different filtering techniques and each is easy to implement and advanced in functionality.
