Pivot viewer Customization RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

      I have just started out with pivot viewer.  I was able to create collections using the excel tool. Now i want to customize my display.I need to allow multiple downloads of the images.  

    One option is to add checkboxes beside every image, so that selected images can be downloaded at once.  How feasible is this ?  I mean, how to add checkboxes to the template.

    Other option is to download the image on the click event , but multiple clicks will cause it to be downloaded several times. Any nice solution for this issue ?

    What do you suggest i do in this scenario ?

  • Hi 

    There are many ways to customize the pivot viewer.  You can look at a project I started here :http://pivotviewerlessons.codeplex.com, or there are several other great blog articles out there.

    However to handle the scenario you described, you going to need to wait until the next version.  If you have not seen a demo of the next version (with XAML based collections generated client side), take a look at the FireStarter keynote. http://www.silverlight.net/news/events/firestarter/

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Jack.

      i already saw that link  ( http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/silverlightpivotviewer/thread/a137c4d6-90d7-44fd-824d-5650a94abe3a/ ) before i posted here.

      I have implemented my second methlod , using double click.

      I'll be experimenting with the pivot viewer for a couple of days , so i'll  post any good solutions in case i find them.

      Thanks.
