Silverlight OrgChart web part

The goal of the project was to create Silverlight control, presenting company employees in organization chart. Control is dedicated to any kind of company - small and midle-size. Due to the fact that chart control is "settle" on SharePoint server , the chart control has been wrapped into parameterizable ASP.NET web part. This article describes another approach for drawing organization structure. There are many sharewares or freewares drawing organization structure, but they usually use Canvas as the main control . For ASP.NET applications this is the only way to successfully draw the structure. My approach is easier and totally independent from any third party drawing libraries. First of all , chart control is created with StackPanel control without Canvas. Unlike Canvas control , StackPanel automatically aligns child items horizontally or vertically. Secondly auto scaling process is resolved with Silverlight native control ViewBox.
