Applying live filters to the collection

Apr 26, 2010 at 12:20 PM

Hi All,

In a first place thank you for your contribution in the codeplex. Currently we are experimenting with some of the futures of the timeline control for silverlight. We are having the requirement to present on the screen the sub-set of items from the collection depending on the user filters (check box, sliders, etc.)

Scenario example: The user wants to select only those items with certain characteristic. Therefore he/she adjust a slider filter accordingly. As a consequence we adjust the number of items on the screen.

Challenge: We would like to avoid generating a new XML collection that contains only selected sub-set of data. Instead we would prefer to select a part of the existing collection.

Question: What is the most appropriate way to approach the challenge? Does the control offers any capability in this sense?

Call ClearEvents/ResetEvents and pass your filtered collection to ResetEvents. Let me know if this is not working for you.
