This sample demonstrates how to create a simple PERT chart. A PERT chart is a project management tool used to schedule and coordinate tasks within a project.
Each node represents an activity and displays several pieces of information about each one. The node template is basically a Panel of type Panel,Table holding several TextBlocks that are data-bound to properties of the Activity, all surrounded by a rectangular border. The lines separating the text are implemented by setting the RowColumnDefinition.separatorStroke for two columns and two rows. The separators are not seen in the middle because the middle row of each node has its RowColumnDefinition.background set to white, and RowColumnDefinition.coversSeparators set to true.
The "critical" property on the activity data object controls whether the node is drawn with a red brush or a blue one. There is a special converter that is used to determine the brush used by the links.
