OrgLineConnector Link change the route and bending direction


Currently we are evaluating syncfusion for winform flow diagram now
I am trying to connect two rectangles in a diagram builder with a OrgLineConnector link.
I need to connect right side of first node with left side of second node.
The connector is bended first down then right then down again and as you can see in the attached screenshot it does not look good.
I need it to got straight to the right first then down then right again to meet the second rectangle.
Can you please let me know how I can change that default behaviour?
Thanks & Regards,

Hi Sumit,  
We have support to achieve the requirements with Line routing feature of the diagram. Please enable Line Routing with distance as 10 to achieve your requirement. We have provided the code example, screenshot and help documentation link. Please refer to them as below.   
Code example for routing:  
//enabling for model  
this.diagram1.Model.LineRoutingEnabled = true;  
//enabling for link object  
link.LineRoutingEnabled = true;  
this.diagram1.Model.LineRouter.DistanceToObstacles = 20;  
this.diagram1.Model.LineRouter.RoutingMode = RoutingMode.Automatic;

Hi Sumit, 
Please set HeadingHead and HeadingTail directions for the connector. So that, the connector connected to first and second node properly. Please find below code example for how to set connector directions. 
OrgLineConnector connector = new OrgLineConnector(new System.Drawing.PointF(10, 200),         new System.Drawing.PointF(300, 250)); 
         // Here cp1 and cp2 are connection point 
            connector.HeadingHead = CompassHeading.East; 
            connector.HeadingTail = CompassHeading.West;
