Hi Venkata,

I know it was only recently that you updated to 2.0 beta 1, but are you planning on updating the control again for 2.0 beta 2?

Thanks for your effort...

Sure I will go ahead and do this this weekend. I did not realize that Microsoft release Silverlight 2.0 beta 2.

I spent a little bit of time migrating the project to Silverlight 2.0 beta 2. Even though most of the changes from the Beta 1 to Beta 2 seems innoculous, there was one that really hurt the existing architecture. Looks like in Beta 2 DependencyObject..SetValue. Looks like this API has become more type safe and does not do type conversion. In particular myPath.SetValue(Path.DataProperty, strPath); where the strPath is a string representation of Path Data no longer works.

Currently all the path elements in the chart are created by getting the template string from a lookAndFeel class and then assigning the path data. I need to change the strategy to either of the following:

1. Insert the Data in the Path template string and create the the path.

2. Change the LookAndFeel template strings and have some like of token for the Path Data and use text formatting/substitution to replace the data. This is an API change.

I have also posted a question in the Silverlight forum to see if anybody can provide a workaround. Here is a link:

If I do not hear back soon, I will try one of the two strategies listed above.
