During this weekend I have been playing around on charting possibilities on TFS On The Road.
Just for information, on this project I’m using the Silverlight Toolkit Chart component, which is doing a very nice job so far. To check some online samples form the Toolkit, click here. Really nice stuff.
I have been thinking on a way to allow the user generate some “quick” charts on the mobile. My idea is just to give the user the chart type possibilities and also the fields to generate the chart. The base chart settings screen looks like this:
For stacked charts you can use up to 2 fields. The chart types and fields are:
Once the user provides this information he can see his chart. When possible the charts are supporting drill-down navigation, which allows you to see the work Items behind a certain chart area.
To show this feature working I prepared one video to show it. Please take a look:
I still need to do some more testing and as soon as possible there will be an update available (the update version will be possibly 1.5.0).
I’m delighted to get your feedback on this feature.
