Visual Elements

The cloud control displays a list of hyperlinks in a cloud of items. Items are rendered with fonts of various sizes depending on the item weight.

The basic visual element of a cloud control is the CloudControlItem (the Item). It can be shown along with its essential part that is the item weight, or without it. The item weight, displayed in parentheses, is represented by the CloudControlItem.Value property value.

The items can have different affixes attached (symbols or text at the beginning and at the end of the item string) to emphasize the item content.

The control determines the size of font to display each item automatically according to its CloudControlItem.Value, based on the ASPxCloudControl.RankCount and ASPxCloudControl.Scale property values.

The combinations of the font face and color scheme makes up the visual style of the control.
