Create custom diagrams by positioning shapes on the diagram surface using an automated layout algorithm or by building them from scratch. The Diagram Control allows users to quickly and easily assemble a variety of diagrams, including flowcharts, organizational charts, mind maps, and floor plans. Connector nodes, dynamically resizable gridlines, and snap-to features, along with alignment, order, delete, and copy and paste functions, allow for precision tuning to any and all diagrams.


Nodes are used to host graphical objects (path or control) that can be arranged and manipulated on a diagram page. The appearance of a node can be fully customized.


Connectors are used to represent relationships between nodes. There are several types of connector available.


Ports are special connection points on a node.


Nodes and connectors can be annotated with text using labels. Labels can be richly formatted and can be edited at runtime just by double clicking.


Nodes and connectors can be grouped together and be accessed as a single objects.

Symbol Palette

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


Several customization options are provided to change the look and feel of different portions of a diagram, enabling the creation of professional-looking diagrams.


The Diagram control has as rich set of interactive features that enables users to add, edit/modify, delete objects (like nodes and connectors) in diagrams at runtime using keyboard, mouse or touch devices.


Editing restrictions can also be enforced on objects to meet business needs.

Align objects

There are several helper options available to easily align objects on the diagram surface.

  • Gridlines that help to align multiple objects in the same line.
  • Guidelines that help to indicate object near its vicinity.
  • Nudging which helps for micro adjustments.
  • There are also other alignment, ordering and sizing commands.

Undo Redo

While editing if a user is not satisfied in with recent changes made, it is possible to make corrections by undoing and re-doing the recent changes as desired.


Cut, Copy, Paste and Duplicate functionality is used to clone one or more copies of the selected objects.

Pan and Zoom

When a diagram is larger than the available space, scrollbars will automatically appear. The diagram can be zoomed in or out to explore specific areas.


Diagram’s state can be saved as a file and then loaded back to restore state.


Several automatic layout algorithms can transform data into visually rich diagrams. Using manual layout rules, you can produce complex layouts with precision.

Excellent toolset and a great support team. I’ve been using Syncfusion’s products for a couple of years, and they save me a lot of time on ASP/MVC development. I’ve found that with every new development, all the components I need are already in my subscription bundle. I really enjoy the product updates with new functionality, including the beta add-ons.

Syncfusion’s Windows Forms and WPF controls allowed us to create an application for traders that provided charts of proprietary information that updated every few seconds. The chart control saved me from having to write my own.

Syncfusion's tools provide features right out of the box, such as charts, layout controls, maps, and reporting. If these controls were designed and implemented manually, the development process would be slowed exponentially!
