Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.The current version of EssentialDiagram WPF does not provide support for the customization of the SymbolPalette. We will provide this support in the Volume 3 release of Essential Diagram which will probably be in the month of August 2009. This will provide complete customization of the SymbolPalette along with options for customizing the SymbolPaletteFilter and SymbolPaletteGroup's Label , background and foreground etc.

Please let us know if you have any concerns.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

SymbolPalette supports Background with any kind of Brush, We have represented Custom Palette in FeaturesDemo sample from Dashboard, by clicking on MenuItem named ‘CustomPalette’, SymbolPalette’s Background will be set to DrawingBrush. However, for your continence we have created a sample with LinearGradientBrush, please refer the sample from the following link.

Sample Link: http://files.syncfusion.com/Support/Diagram.WPF/Samples/F80661/SymbolPaletteBackground.zip

For more details about customizing the look and feel of SymbolPalette, please refer online Documentation http://help.syncfusion.com/ug_83/User%20Interface/WPF/Diagram/ and navigate to Concepts and Features -> SymbolPalette -> Customize the SymbolPalette.

Please let us know if you have any concerns.
