Sankey Diagram

Visualize multidimensional data flows with ease

The DevExpress WinForms Sankey Diagram control helps visualize data as flows or relationships (links) between nodes. When used, our WinForms Sankey Diagram allows end-users to quickly determine major paths within data, quickly spot inefficiencies or isolate losses within a given flow model.

The DevExpress Sankey Diagram requires multi-category data - a dataset that contains a source field, a target field, and a weight field. These different variables within the dataset serve as the different nodes within the diagram. The Sankey Diagram control supports the following data sources:

  • IList
  • IListSource
  • IBindingList
