Google Organizational Chart control

Official Content

This control shows an organizational chart that support selection.

Example

The user control is really simple, you just need to set one property in order to get the control working: the VisualizationData property.

Show a simple chart to illustrate a hierarchical model of an organization

  • Drag and drop OrganizationalChart.
  • Assign to VisualizationData property a variable based on OrganizationalChart data type (this SDT is automatically imported when dropping the control to the web form).
  • Load the information that will be shown by the chart using the previous mentioned variable.
Sub 'LoadOrganizationalChart'
  &item.Text = "John"
  &item.Tooltip = "Tooltip for John"
  &list.Add(&item)

  &item = new()
  &item.Text = "Steve"
  &list.Item(1).Children.Add(&item)

  &item = new()
  &item.Text = "Paul"
  &list.Item(1).Children.Item(1).Children.Add(&item)

  &item = new()
  &item.Text = "Aaron"
  &list.Item(1).Children.Item(1).Children.Add(&item)
  organizationalChart1.Reload = true
EndSub

 

Note: &item is based on OrganizationalChartSDT.OrganizationalChartItem and &list is based on OrganizationalChartSDT (this SDT is also automatically imported when dropping the control to a web form).
