I am a new user of your tool Syncfusion , I was trying to reuse the flowchart- Decision symbol in new symbolpaletteGroup as customized  

So I defined a Node and I choosed  the shape as Flowchart-Decision  and assigned it to to   item.content and it did work but when I move the mouse pointer over the symbol to drag it  I get  the nullrefrenceException.

Thank you for your Help

Hi Abdallah,

We have analysed your query regarding customize symbol palette item null reference exception. We request to set IsHitTestVisible as false, once you set node as SymbolpaletteItem’s content. Kindly refer the below code snippet,

SymbolPaletteItem item=new SymbolPaletteItem();

              Node n = new Node()


                Width = 50,

                Height = 50,

                Shape = Shapes.FlowChart_Data


              item.Content = n;

              (item.Content as Node).IsHitTestVisible = false;

Please let us know, if you require further assist on this.
