Connecting nodes

i would like to know how can i connect two nodes after dropping them from the Palette on Diagram grid?
so that if i choose a node a line will appear to connect it with the other node that im choosing next.
an example will be good for me.

PS: i send you an example about my request.

Best Regards,

Hi Hayssam,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


We suggest you to use the DiagramWebControl’s client side method ‘Activate’ to activate the drawing tools like Rectangle, Ellipse, LineConnector, OrthogonalConnector, etc.,. Please refer the below code snippet to achieve your requirement.


Here is the code:


<asp:ImageButton ID="btnDirected" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Content/NodeImages/icons_11.png" OnClientClick="_sfDiagramWebControl1.Activate('DirectedLineConnectorTool'); return false;"/>

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>

<syncfusion:DiagramWebControl ID="DiagramWebControl1" runat="server" Height="550px"

        Width="600px" />


For more information, please visit the below online UG documentation link:



Please try the below attached sample and let us know if you have any queries.

Hi Hayssam,


Thanks for your update.


Currently we don’t have support to draw a link that connects two nodes at run time without clicking a button. This has been suspected to be a feature. Please create a DT incident for your query so that we can update the patch for this feature.

You can create the DT incident from the following link.
