TaskGallery meet the Trader Surface


A colleague pointed me at an old CodeProject article which is still relevant today. Specifically the article mentioned the TaskGallery that Microsoft Research was playing around with back in 1999. The TaskGallery screenshot is to a degree similar to how a trader today sets up their LCD monitors on the desk. We reflect this setup to a degree in SilverTrader, and via the Window Manager that we have been working on in our WPF equity application.

  1. Agree!
    Love treemaps and sparklines, and with an hour of updating the code to reflect the changes that have been made to the framework and removing the xml implementation in favor of CLR object/linq the treemap will play nicely!
    Other implementations of treemaps can be found here http://www.codeplex.com/treemaps and here http://www.codeplex.com/MemTreeMap
