    The new site allows music lovers to read news, play tracks and watch music videos from thousands of artists. Browsing thousands of albums for reviews and music is made simple by Silverlight PivotViewer and Deep Zoom, while music videos are delivered seamlessly via Silverlight Smooth Streaming Technology.

    In this next part of his PivotViewer series, Timmy Kokke explains how to make use of Custom Actions.

    The only downside of these actions is that they aren’t fully implemented. So you’ll have to extend the PivotViewer control yourself. If you haven’t worked with the PivotViewer before, you might want to have a look at the Building your first PivotViewer application tutorial I wrote earlier first. This tutorial continues on that.

    This tutorial continues on techniques from last tutorial about runtime collection creation. If you are just getting started using the PivotViewer control, you might want to have a look at the Getting Started Tutorial first. This tutorial is centered around the methods build in the last tutorial: MakeCollection and MakeItem.

    By using Microsoft Pivot and the Pauthor open source libraries, Tim Greenfield has created a tool that lets you produce a Pivot of all your photos on your hard disk.

    As an amateur photographer, I have always kept my eyes open for new tools to help me search, sort, filter, and view my own photos. Microsoft Pivot (a cool new technology that lets you easily view, search, and filter data using deep zoom) seemed like a natural and obvious fit for the task.

    Therefore, using Microsoft Pivot and the Pauthor open source libraries, I created a tool that helps users create a pivot collection from the photos on their hard drive and supports filtering by all the nifty meta data embedded in those files such as shutter speed, aperture, film speed, and focal length.

    Max Paulousky is going to extend the functionality of his previous add-on for Visual Studio (Xaps Minifier) to simplify developers’ life.

    Pivot Viewer control is used for visualizing big chunk of data and allows filtering and sorting by many criteria. Source code can be used as data that should be analyzed by a developer/team lead etc to find out bottlenecks. When I say ‘bottlenecks’, I mean classes, files, methods that should be refactored. For example, It is very difficult to maintain large classes or methods. They  should be divided into several pieces or minimized by excluding duplicated code etc.

  • A tool to help diagnose problems setting up your PivotViewer app

    If you are running into a handful of common configuration problems with your application, server, or the collection content when trying to use PivotViewer, then you have to check this tool made by Andrew Cox which will help you diagnose these problems. 

    The collection and application need to be hosted on a web server (even the Visual Studio development web server that VS starts up to run your Silverlight apps will do just fine). You'll also need at least .net 3.5 installed to run the application.

    Tim Heuer explains how to display data by using the PivotViewer control.

    I received an email a few days back hoping for a more quick “how to” on using this control.  After all, it is a control for Silverlight and requires some implementation.  Honestly, I hadn’t even used it myself until I got that note.  I thought I’d jot down my notes in creating and consuming the simplest form of data and display using PivotViewer.  I say “simple” because you can get much more complex, but I wanted to simply show the quick steps.

    Shai Raiten explains what is Silverlight PivotViewer and how to connect it to your Silverlight application.

    Pivot makes it easier to interact with massive amounts of data in ways that are powerful, informative, and fun. Microsoft Live Labs tried to step back and design an interaction model that accommodates the complexity and scale of information rather than the traditional structure of the Web.
