Dynamically modifying a shape within a symbol

Asked On September 15, 2006 05:59 PM UTC

I have a symbol which contains a rectangle; when I created the rectangle I specified local coordinates within the symbol (i.e. 0,0).

I now need to programmatically move the location of the rectangle within the symbol; but local coordinates no longer seem to be correct (i.e. 10,10 does not move the rectangle to 10,10 within the symbol).

What is going on?

Hi Mulveyja,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Essential Diagram.

I am afraid, I was not able to reproduce this issue with v4.2.0.37. I have attached my test sample here for your reference. In this sample initially you should select the symbol and you can enter the X and Y coordinates(10,10) in the corresponding textboxes and when you click on the "Ok" button the inner rectangle will move to its corresponding modified location within the symbol.

Please try this and let me know if this helps you.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Your sample seems to demonstrate exactly the issue that I''m seeing.

I''ve just upgraded to SF to be sure.

With your sample try moving MySymbol to the center of the design surface. Then modify the x and y of the innerRect and you should see the issue that I''m having.
Basically after adding MySymbol to the diagram it then morphs into using world rather than MySymbol local coordinates. i.e. setting the innerRect location to 0,0 actually positions the innerRect at the origin of the diagram; not the origin of the containing symbol (which is what one would expect).

Can you confirm that you see this?

Thanks for your prompt response,
