Maybe Is it possible to export or save diagram to xml in silverlight diagram control and open import created xml in ASP.NET WebDiagram control and save it as image by using DiagramWebControl.ExportDiagramAsImage()method?

Hi Peter,
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
With regards to, currently we do not have support to import the Serialized XML (from Silverlight) into Asp.NET WebDiagram control and save it as image by using DiagramWebControl.ExportDiagramAsImage()method.
We assume that your requirement is to serialize the Diagram into XML and save into DataBase and then render the XML as Image.
Details about XML serialization in Silverlight and save in Database.

Please let us know if you have any concerns,

Hi Peter, Jorge,

Currently there is no interoperability between Diagram Silvelright and ASP.NET. However, content of the silverlight diagram can be exported as an image file using ‘Image Tool’.

With regards to exporting the Diagram into Image format, we do not have support to export Diagram as image at present. The API’s for converting as images are not available in Silverlight. However, there is a Codeplex project that supports exporting Visual elements into image file. We have provided the sample and a Link to this tool. Please refer to them from the attachment.

Codeplex project Link: http://imagetools.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Write%20the%20content%20of%20a%20canvas%20to%20a%20file

Please let us know if you need any further details.
