Modern UI Apps Development - Modern UI Data Visualization Toolkit

"I’ve been hiding for a while working on what I consider a big step for modern applications to look nicer with more charts and ways to display data in controls

So as a matter of fact I successfully migrated the famous silverlight toolkit to be running on Windows 8 Modern UI applications.

Well, not everything is there yet since I’m migrating class-by-class while understanding how things are working on these huge components.

You can follow my project on CodePlex: http://modernuitoolkit.codeplex.com/

For now, you can find the bar, line, column chart and mixed series available, and I’m looking for people to join me on this as it’s a very big project and I believe that this is the most advanced charting control available for Windows 8 so far. With your help, it can be even better.



The main purpose for this is to build a set of reusable controls for Windows 8 Modern UI Development. The Primary Release will contain the PieChart that I developed earlier on:

main Controls
- Pie Chart
- ColumnChart
- Line Chart

With support of Multi Series and Stacked Charts
Samples in Action:


Nothing like pretty pie charts and graphs for our Modern UI Windows Store apps (where we also get the source and a chance to help out on the project!)

Managing data at scale doesn’t have to be hard. Find out how the completely free, open source HPCC Systems platform makes it easier to update, easier to program, easier to integrate data, and easier to manage clusters. Download and get started today.
