How can i implement a pencil tool to freely draw a object, with a pencil, like if it was drawing in Microsoft Paint? I need this feature to draw text and make hand underlines in a TabletPC (with the tablet pen) in a presentation scenario.

Hi ,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Currently our Diagram control does not support the "Pencil Tool " like in MSPaint. I have logged a feature request in this regard and forwarded this to our developer for more analysis. I will get back to you with the time frame for this feature, on or before 22nd August, 2008.

Thanks ,

Do you have any news on this? We are liking a lot of your product but the PencilTool or any workaround is really a design requirement.

Hi Richard ,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Please refer to the attached sample that demonstrates to activate HandFreeTool and you can draw your custom shape.


In this sample when you click on Tool->HandFreeTool, you can draw the custom shapes.

Please let me know if this helps.
