Hi ,
I am looking to get the path of the source image for the BitmapNode, but I wasn't able to find any property with such value

Hi George,  
Please use the below code example to get an Image location. By default, the path gets accessed from bin folder and if you need to access the folder location, you should Rightclick on image -> click properties -> Copy to Output Directory as Copy always. Please refer to a screenshot below.  
Code example:  
// Get the location of image  
   string filePath = Path.Combine(Environment.CurrentDirectory, "Images\\personico.bmp");  
Here is the link to get an image path.  
please refer to the code example below render  an image node.  
Code example:  
// Get an location of image  
   string filePath = Path.Combine(Environment.CurrentDirectory, "Images\\personico.bmp");  
  // Set an filepath to bitmap class  
 Bitmap bitmap = new Bitmap(filePath);  
 //Render an image Node  
BitmapNode image = new BitmapNode(bitmap, new RectangleF(0, 0, 100, 50));

Hi George,  
Please use Diagram “BitmapTool” to activate the tool and create the BitmapNode at runtime. While creating the BitmapNode using Diagram tool at runtime, the dialog box will appear and select the image anywhere from the machine. Please refer to the below attached sample.
