I thought this would be easy.

I'm trying the following:

diagram.updateLabel(conn.name, conn.labels[0], { fillColor: 'white' });

It would seem that conn.labels[0] is undefined.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Jim

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We are glad to let you know that we have created a simple sample to achieve your requirement and it is available in the below link for download. Please refer the code snippet:

Code snippet:

<ej:diagram id="Diagram1" runat="server" height="1000px" width="1000px">

//creating connectors

Connector connect = new Connector();

connect.Name = "samsa";

//adding labels

Label label = new Label();

label.Text = "ram";

<input type="button" value="updatelabel" onclick="updatelabel()" />

<script type="text/javascript">

function updatelabel() {

var diagram = $("#Diagram1").ejDiagram("instance");

var connector = diagram.model.selectedItems.children[0];

if (connector)

diagram.updateLabel(connector.name,connector.labels[0], {fillColor:"blue"});



Please let me know if any concerns.

Hi Shyam,

Thanks for the code.
Actually I ended up changing the fillcolor in the OnClientTextChange event handler.
It seems that the label does not exist until you first double-click on the connector to add the text.
Anyway, this approach works for me.

Thanks for confirming that my updateLabel statement was in the correct format.

Hi Jim

Thanks for your update.

It seems that the label does not exist until you first double-click on the connector to add the text.
Please note that by default there won’t be label added in the elements. Once the editing is completed, if an element has a label then the label will updated or else it will be added to the element. Please note that updateLabel method is applicable only when the element has a label.

Please let me know if any concerns,

Shyam G
