Hi Hayssam,


Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.


Please note that the node’s FillStyle properties (changing appearance of nodes) are available only for those nodes which are derived from the “FilledPath”. Since the connectors, lines, curves, etc. are drawn basically using lines, and does not have any closed graphics path, this is the reason why the lines won’t have the Fillstyle properties. However, you can change the appearance of lines using its LineStyle properties.


Please let us know if you have any queries.

Hi Hayssam,


Thanks for your update.


Currently we have support to change the LineStyle of the entire node [Line drawn around the node] only. However you can achieve your requirement by creating the polygon node and the same can be demonstrated in the below sample.


Here is the code:


PointF[] pts = new PointF[]{new PointF(100,100), new PointF(240,100) , new PointF(280,140), new PointF(240,180), new PointF(100,180) };

                Polygon poly = new Polygon(pts);



Here is the sample:
