StripedLayoutAlgorithm Class

A class representing the Strip layout algorithm.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.TreeMap

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.TreeMap.v19.1.dll

Declaration

public class StripedLayoutAlgorithm :
    TreeMapLayoutAlgorithm
Public Class StripedLayoutAlgorithm
    Inherits TreeMapLayoutAlgorithm

Remarks

Under this algorithm, for each item to layout, check whether adding the item to the current strip improves the average aspect ratios of the rectangles in the current strip. If the average aspect ratio is improved, the rectangle is added to the current strip, otherwise, the current strip is fixed and a new strip is created, to which the item is added.

The following image demonstrates the layout calculated using this algorithm.

Examples

To customize the layout algorithm, do the following.

<dxtm:TreeMapControl x:Name="treeMap"
                     LayoutAlgorithm="{Binding ElementName=lbLayoutAlgorithm, Path=SelectedValue}">
