Hi Anu,

You have to use TaxonomyManager and its methods to get the taxons and list them in your cloud. Then you have to use GetItemsByTaxon method of ContentDataProvider to get the count of content items associated with a given taxon.

i created a custom widget to show a cloud of tags associated with posts of my blog.
The following (simplified) code snippet of my widget .ascx control might not be the best solution, but it works:

<%@ Control Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Model" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Blogs.Model" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Blogs" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Taxonomies" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Taxonomies.Model" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.GenericContent" %>
<script type="text/C#" runat="server">
public string BlogID get; set;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Guid id;
            if (BlogID != "" && Guid.TryParse(BlogID, out id))
                Telerik.Sitefinity.Blogs.Model.Blog blog = App.WorkWith().Blogs().Where(b => b.Id == id).Get().SingleOrDefault();
                if (blog != null)
                    TaxonomyManager taxManager = TaxonomyManager.GetManager();
                    var tags = taxManager.GetTaxonomies<FlatTaxonomy>().Where(t => t.Name == "MyTagClassification").SingleOrDefault();
                    if (tags != null)                       
                        foreach (var tag in tags.Taxa)
                            RadTagCloudItem item = new RadTagCloudItem();
                            item.Text = tag.Name;
                            var posts = App.WorkWith().Blog(blog.Id).BlogPosts().Where(ci => ci.Status == Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model.ContentLifecycleStatus.Live && ci.GetValue<IList<Guid>>("MyTagClassification").Contains(tag.Id)).Get().ToList();
                            item.Weight = posts.Count;
 <telerik:RadTagCloud ID="TagCloud1" runat="server"></telerik:RadTagCloud

Hello Matthias,

Thank you for your reply and also for providing the code. I was trying to implement the code you have provided below. But, I was thinking how you were associating this widget with each blog post item. Could you please let me know.Sorry, for the question if it is really simple.

Thank you once again.
