Drill Down Support in WPF TreeMap (SfTreeMap)

10 May 20213 minutes to read

TreeMap enables drill down to expose the hierarchy by clicking on a treemap node and allows drill up by clicking on drill down header. At a time, only one level of the hierarchy can be seen in the treemap.

Enabling Drill Down

Treemap items can be drilled down by enabling the property EnableDrillDown to ‘true’. The hierarchy of treemap levels can be shown by clicking on treemap items. The previous level can be drilled up by clicking on drill down header. DrillDown header can be customized with the help of DrillDownHeaderTemplate property.
