SliceAndDiceLayoutAlgorithm Class

A class representing the Slice and Dice layout algorithm.

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

Expanded Syntax

Expanded Remarks

This algorithm calculates the layout using the following principle. For each tree map level the layout direction is selected depending on the width/height ratio (for LayoutMode = SliceAndDiceLayoutMode.Auto), and for all children items at a given level, the display area is divided amongst the children, where each child item obtains a slice proportional to its value.

The following image demonstrates the country area tree map with a layout calculated using this algorithm.

Expanded Example

To customize the layout algorithm, do the following.
