Source Code For Presidential Candidate Tracker Visualization
Due to repeated requests for the source code (and the fact that I apparently can’t brag about it on Silverlight.Net without a link to the source code), I’m putting it up for download.
JSON Data File With Candidate Data (Note: Apparently, WordPress likes to uncapitalize file names for me, you may have to re-name the file to “CandData.json” to get it to work with the app.)
Warning: This code is a disaster. I was having strange problems getting my custom controls to work and, after a couple hours fighting with it, I gave up and ended up writing the exact same layout and code for 14 separate candidates. Same problem with the “dates-of-note” along the timeline.
Not pretty, but it works. Have fun.
