WinForms TreeMap Control (Coming soon in v16.1)

Thinking Out Loud
18 May 2016

In our last major release, we announced the availability of our WPF TreeMap Control - a way to visualize hierarchical or flat data using nested rectangles.

As is always the case when we release a new product for a specific Windows platform, our WinForms customers were all over us to add this control to our WinForms toolbox. To our WinForms customers - we heard you loud & clear and I'm happy to announce that v16.1 will definitely ship with the new DevExpress WinForms TreeMap Control.

I noted in my blog post last year that if you are unfamiliar with TreeMaps and want to explore the UX/Analytics opportunities they offer, take a moment to review the following Wikipedia article.

Appearance and Behavior Customization

The DevExpress WinForms TreeMap allows you to specify the layout algorithm used to arrange tree map items. The following options are available:

Slice and Dice
WPF Tree Map Slice & Dice
WPF Tree Map Squarified
WPF Tree Map Striped

Should you require a different layout, you can design derivatives as necessary.  With Colorizers, you can specify TreeMap colors automatically. The following list includes all colorizers shipped with the WinForms TreeMap.

WPF Tree Map Palette Colorizer
WPF Tree Map Gradient Colorizer
Group Gradient
WPF Tree Map Group Gradient Colorizer
WPF Tree Map Range Colorizer

Much like layout algorithms, you can implement your custom colorizer when needed. Finally, the WinForms TreeMap control supports the interactivity features including selection, highlighting and tooltips.


So tell us what you think - We'd love to hear your thoughts on our new WinForms TreeMap Control.
