Hi!

I have a pdf with a building  floorplan (very large building) and i would like to create the floorplan in xaml and then make every room clickable so that users may get info about the room!
what would be the best way to do it? and what tools to use for creating the xaml?

i work in visual studio normally.

a code sample would be great!

Depending on the complexity of the shapes involved, you may wish to consider the Path tool, you could also use the Tooltip rather than a button to display information when someone hovers over the shape (just a suggestion):

<Grid>
    <Path Stroke="Blue" Fill="Red"
            HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch"
            Margin="0" Width="100" Height="100" x:Name="Path"
            Stretch="Fill"
            Data="M8.660254,0 L17.320508,5 17.320508,15 8.660254,20 0,15 0,5 8.660254,0 z">
        <Path.ToolTip>
            <TextBlock Text="Description" />
        </Path.ToolTip>
    </Path>
</Grid>
