Visualize Ram / disk usage desktop application

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
Hey everyone,
I want to experiment with visualizing realtime ram usage / disk usage in the desktop background, it should also be a bit interactive (when the user moves his mouse the color could change for example) i want to start very basic.
Can someone point me in the right direction how to begin this? I can program in C#/asp.net, i saw some f# examples but i don't even know how to run them :)
Tx so much for any guidance.

Hello Borrie,
you can use the PerformanceCounter class to get current RAM usage and disk usage(see
[1] for more information).
For the visualization, you can use the DataVisualizetion package from the WPF ToolKit [2].
There is a sample project about visualizing ram usage at
[3].
