Property Value

Type Description

The collection of selected groups’ paths.


The group path consists of data items that this and parent groups visualize. The item order within this collection specifies the nesting level within the Tree Map or Sunburst. For example, the following image demonstrates two selected groups: the “50 - 60 years” and the “70 - 80 years” | “United States” subgroup:


The group path contains a collection with one value equals “50 - 60 years” in the first case. And the second path includes two values: “70 - 80 years” and “United States”.

Note that the data items’ concrete type depends on the controls’ data adapter type:
