Tag cloud component? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    Does anyone know of a Tag Cloud component? I've seen some articles on writing them but most have been based on panels and textboxes. Can anyone give me some pointers on how it could be done on a free-draw-canvas? I'd like to pass in strings and weights and draw them on the screen so that the most important would be black and in the center and the texts would be smaller and more grey and towards the edges when the weight decreases.

    I'm a WP noob but I have Java experience and could probably do this in Graphics2D but I'm looking for pointers on how to "draw on a canvas" and how to measure the target text size in C# (in order to determine placing)

    Thanks in advance,

  • I've made some progress with a Canvas and TextBox-children, pushed around with various margins but pointers are still appreciated..
