We were investigating the options for visual representation of hierarchical dashboard in our Silverlight application. This means, we want to display the number of gauges with tree-like structure. Here is a sample...
While developing the dashboard to display several performance indexes, I bumped into the task of visualizing the pair of numbers on a single gauge. One number would show a person's performance metric, while the other one would display the person group's performance indicator to compare with. I couldn't find a ready control to use, so I decided to design my own.
Recently, I've spent a couple of days seeking and fixing memory leaks in our Silverlight application. It might be tough sometimes, but it's a good 'brain-teasing' practice and it's a good way to learn how inner things work.
Recently, I was trying to find a Silverlight control, which works like a standard Border, but looks like a Speech Bubble instead. This means the border would have a "leader" triangle, which could point to a related visual element.
