Diagramming

The Diagram control is used for creating diagrams like flow charts, organizational charts, mind maps, floor plans and swim lane diagrams either through code or through a visual interface that is similar to Visio.

Diagram


Nodes

Nodes are used to host graphical objects (paths or controls) that can be arranged and manipulated on a diagram page.

  • Many predefined standard shapes have been included.
  • Custom shapes can also be created and added easily.
  • Appearance of a node can be fully customized.
  • Node’s UI can also be templated and re-used across multiple nodes.

Nodes


Connectors

Relationship between two nodes is represented using a Connector. Multiple instances of nodes and connectors form a diagram. Some of the key features are listed below.

Connectors


Types

Types

Different types of segments are available to connect between objects.

Bridging

Bridging

Bridging is a visual indication of overlapping between two connectors.

Routing

Routing

Orthogonal connectors take a smart path that avoids overlapping with nodes to which it is connected to.

Decorator

Decorator

Arrows or decorators, at the edges of connectors are used to represent relationships between nodes.

Rounded Corners

Rounded Corners

Corner radius can be specified for edges in connectors.

Ports

Ports

Ports are specific points in a node to which a connector can be connected.


Label

Labels are used to annotate nodes and connectors. Diagram also make it easy to edit and align labels relative to the object to which it is mapped to.

Label


Interactive Feature

Interactive features are used to improve the runtime editing experience of a diagram. You can easily edit a diagram with mouse, touch screen or keyboard interfaces.

Rotate

Select, Drag, Resize, Rotate

Objects can be selected and then dragged, resized or rotated.

Snap

Snap

Objects can be aligned easily against gridlines or neighboring objects.

Keyboard Interactions

Keyboard interactions

All common actions can also be performed through keyboard input.

Connect

Connect

Connect tool can be used to create a connection between two nodes, ports or points.

Edit Connector

Edit Connector

Connector’s route can be manually edited by dragging thumbs that are visible after selection.

Zoom Pan

Zoom Pan

Large diagrams can be explored using the zoom and pan tool.

Group

Group

Multiple nodes or connectors can be grouped together to form a single object called a Group.

Drawing Tool

Drawing Tool

Drawing tool enables users to draw custom nodes and shapes by clicking and dragging on the diagram surface.


Data Binding

Seamlessly data-bind to various client-side and remote data sources such as JSON, RESTful services, OData services, WCF services and much more.

Commands

Diagram control has a predefined set of commands. Some of standard commands are mapped to keyboard shortcuts. It is also possible to configure new commands and key combinations.

Commands


Automatic layout

Automatic layout is used to arrange nodes automatically based on a pre-defined layout logic. There is built-in support for organization chart layout, hierarchical tree layout and radial tree layout.

Overview

Overview control is used to improve the navigation experience when exploring large diagrams. It displays a small preview and allows performing operations such as zooming and panning within it.

Overview


Symbol Palette

The Symbol palette is a gallery of reusable symbols/nodes that can be dragged and dropped on to the surface of the diagram.

Symbol Palette


Swimlane

A swim lane is a visual element used in process flow diagrams or flowcharts. Swim lanes may be arranged either horizontally or vertically. It has built-in lanes and phases where nodes can be added to it. It has rich interactive features and auto alignment options, which makes editing easy.

Serialization

Diagram’s state can be persisted to JSOM format and then be loaded back using serialization.

Serialization


Exporting and Printing

Diagrams can be easily exported as image files (png, jpeg, bmp and svg formats) and can also be printed as a document.

Exporting and Printing


Miscellaneous

There are several other features available to enhance the diagramming experience.

Tooltip

Tooltip

Additional information about a node can be viewed using tooltips.

Gridlines

Gridlines

Gridlines provide guidance when trying to align objects.

Page Layout

Page Layout

The drawing surface can be given a page like appearance using page size, orientation and margin.

User Handles

User Handles

Frequently used commands can be easily mapped to the user-handle.

Context Menu

Context Menu

Frequently used commands can be easily mapped to the context menu.


Localization
