I see that many of your products are moving to WPF. Are you willing to share your plans to move EssentialDiagram to WPF using XAML as the diagram 'file format'.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Essential Studio.

Hi Naboki,

Yes. WPF Diagram product implementation has been started. This might be available in the middle of this year. For your information WPF Grid also available with that release.

Thanks for the interest in Syncfusion products.

Will there be a migration path for the current edd format to XAML? I want to be sure that as I start development today with the current version of Essential Diagram that I'll be able to convert everything easily when the WPF version comes? Also, is there a beta version we could test?

Hi Jason,

As you know Framework 3.5 is totally different then Framework 2.0. You could not convert Windows Forms applications into WPF applications easily. Because there is lot of API changes and also Microsoft released new declarative program model (XAML) for WPF. When WPF Diagram is available for beta(Might be around August 2008), you can see lot of advanced features will be available then compare Windows Essential Diagram.

From the following forum, you can get idea about how hard to convert windows forms application into WPF application

Please let me know if you have any questions.

It's good to hear that Essential Diagram for WPF is in your plans. Is there any chance that such a product supports both Silverlight and WPF? (from a superset API perspective)

My argument for this is that:
a) WPF is mostly a super-set of Silverlight, so it is possible to have a product who's source code is structured to support both.
b) It greatly increases your developer audience i.e. allows for both desktop and web applications.
c) Setting this dual support structure in place early sets the scene as Silverlight and WPF increases in popularity and functionality.

In fact, a dual Silverlight/WPF support strategy would be a significant differentiating factor for all of your component products in the market place. It would be non-trivial to achieve, but I believe that's what developers will want in the near future.

Hi Apolon,

Compatibility will be a priority in future releases. Since Silverlight is a subset of WPF you can expect that some innovation in the future. The design goals of Silverlight are meant to provide the maximum of functionality for the smallest download cost. Because of this design goal,No WPF controls are support directly. But we are working on the analysing about innovative outcome for this.

Thanks for the interest in Syncfusion products.

We are really interested by your WPF Diagram component for a new WPF application we have currently under development. Are you still planning to have a beta version available sometimes next month?
