Pivotviewer Module for Drupal

The Pivotviewer Module for Drupal allows users to include a Silverlight PivotViewer control in their content pages like Articles and Basic Pages. 
The Silverlight PivotViewer makes it easier to interact with massive amounts of data and visualize them in a way that exposes value from the group.

This module works on Drupal 7 version. It requires Drupal to be running on IIS with .NET Framework 4.0 version.
The module is supported on Internet Explorer 8.0, Google Chrome 8.0 and Mozilla Firefox 3.6 browsers. 


Please go through the index.html for a complete set of installation instructions.

Install Drupal module file from the Module Upload UI or extract the contents to folder sites/all/modules. 
Then login as the Drupal administrator, under the Modules page you will find the PivotViewer module, enable the module and click on the 
Save Configuration button. Then disable Clean URLs from Configuration -> Clean URLs -> Uncheck checkbox. 

Before using the PivotViewer module, it has to be configured. The PivotViewer administration page can be accessed from the Modules 
page by clicking on the Configure link beside the PivotViewer module. Here you can configure the different data sources that the PivotViewer can interact with. 
The module supports data sources of type OData, Windows Azure Blob, Twitter, Media Folder, and Pivot Collection 
The administration page also allows the administrator to associate PivotViewer with available content types. Click on the 'Save Configuration' button 
after selecting the required content types. 


To embed a PivotViewer control in your content, you need to place the {pivotviewer} macro in the content (Article, Basic Page) text. 
Also, the Text Format of the content (Article, Basic Page) should be set to 'Full HTML'. The macro can be generated by using 
the 'Add PivotViewer' button in the Create content (Article, Basic Page) page. 

The 'Add PivotViewer' button is automatically associated with all existing content types like Article and Basic Page. 
To view the button during creation of newly added content types, it has to be associated with the content types.

The macro allows users to select the data source which the PivotViewer control should load. This macro should be copied in the content text. 
Once the content (Article, Basic Page) has been saved with the {pivotviewer} macro, a PivotViewer control will be displayed in its place on viewing the content.
