ASPxCloudControl.Scale Property

Gets or sets the algorithm that normilizes item weights.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(Scales.Logarithmic)]
public Scales Scale { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Scales

Logarithmic

A Scales enumeration value.

Available values:

Name Description
Linear

The linear scaling is used.

Logarithmic

The logarithmic scaling is used.

Remarks

If the linear distribution is used (the Scale property is set to Scales.Linear), the weighted list ranges from 1 to 70 and the ASPxCloudControl.RankCount property is set to 7, the smallest font size is applied to items whose weight ranges from 1 to 10. The largest font size is applied to items whose weight ranges from 61 to 70, respectively.

To make a cloud more useful, it needs to be divided up into levels with a more equal distribution. To do this, set the Scale property to Scales.Logarithmic.

Example

The following sample code demonstrates how to customize the appearance of the ASPxCloudControl control.
