Adding multiple Nodes Connectors to Diagram with one Drag and drop from Palette

Hi Syncfusion Team,
I am using Diagram Builder Sample from Showcase Samples (Web Forms).
Like the subject says, I want to drag one Item from Palette to diagram which morphs
macro-like to multiple Connectors and Nodes (Like a macro or shortcut).
I came up with the following solution:

-Define a BasicShape which is added to Palette
-catch the element in the nodeOnDrop javascript function
-remove the Element
-define the connectors and nodes myself in javascript
-add it to the diagram where the Pallette item was dropped

Unfortunately I cant remove the Element, because it seems to
get added by another function after nodeOnDrop has finished.
I was not able to find the place where the node was added to
diagram. Maybe you can point me to the place in the source
files. As I said I used the source Code from Diagram Builder
in Showcase Samples.

Hi Fabian, 
To achieve your requirement, please cancel the drop event by setting args.cancel=true and then add a new nodes and connectors. Please refer to the code example below. 
Code example: 
DiagramContent.OnClientDrop = "nodeondrop"; 
function nodeondrop(args) { 
    args.cancel = true; 
    //add a new node 
diagram.add({ name: "firstNode", width: 100, height: 100, offsetX: args.element.offsetX, offsetY: args.element.offsetY });
