I have seen some posts relating to this but it is still not clear to me if this is possible.
Can I create a shape (for the pallet - perhaps as part of a libary) that has custom properties so that when the user views the properties they see either a custom properties tab with these or the ability to hide existing shape properties and just show custom ones?
Alternatively (and ideally) rather than show the propeties window could you show a completey different window for capturing custom propeties?

do these propeties get saved out as part of the diagram XML so they could be parsed and then updated in a database for this diagram for instance?

Hi Rhawk,
Thank you fro posting query to us.

Please refer the following samples in the sample browser shipped with our products:
{install drive}:\Documents and Settings\{username}\My Documents\Syncfusion\EssentialStudio\\Windows\Diagram.Windows\Samples\2.0\Symbol Design\CustomSymbol

This sample demonstrates how to customize the behavior of a symbol designed with the Essential Diagram SymbolDesigner by subclassing it at the application level.

{install drive}:\Documents and Settings\{username}\My Documents\Syncfusion\EssentialStudio\\Windows\Diagram.Windows\Samples\2.0\Symbol Design\DynamicSymbol
This sample demonstrates a programmatically defined symbol type that responds to user actions.The MySymbol class defines the symbol geometry, and handles mouse and click events to dynamically change certain display attributes of the symbol.The sample also shows the serialization implementation required for custom symbol classes.

Kindly try this and let me know if you need further assistance.
