last week Microsoft launched the Silverlight PivotViewer control that makes it easier to interact with massive amounts of data in ways that are powerful, informative and fun. The PivotViewer is a sibling of the Microsoft Pivot WPF application that enables users to explore structured data sets on the desktop. WIth the Viewer you can enable this amazing data visualization experience on your Web site and allow it to feed from dynamic data sets (as the example blow shows) . Implementing using a static data set uses a CXML file (XML file that has all the metadata) while implementign using a dynamic data set requires to implement a simple middle layer that creates this XML data dynamically from a data source.
Free download of Silverlight PivotViewer can be found here: www.silverlight.net/learn/pivotviewer and you can discuss it with our team on: http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/68.aspx.
