I want to be able to select and move nodes in a diagram. I don't like the style of the edit/selection. The dot in the center, the lines connecting from dot to dot around the node. Can I turn set my own style for nodes when they are selected and moving?

Hi Anton.

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Essential Diagram WPF currently does not provide support to customize the selection rectangle. This feature will be provided in our future releases.

The center port displayed on each node is for enabling connecting to the nodes boundary in case any other ports are defined on the node. However we suppose that you wish to hide the center port when the node is selected or moved. We will provide this feature in our future releases.

We usually have a timeframe of at least three months between releases. The feature
implementation would also greatly depend on the factors like product design,
code compatibility and complexity.

However the line connectors are completely customizable. Please refer our online documentation for further details.

The online documentation can be accessed via the below mentioned link:


Navigate to : Concepts and Features--> LineConnectors

You can define custom ports on the nodes to make connections to specific points on the nodes.

Navigate to : Concepts and Features--> ConnectionPort in the online documentation to get more details about how to define custom ports.

This way you can change the point at which the connection is made to the node. By default the connection is always made from the node's bounding rectangle.

Since this was planned for a future release - and that was 4 years ago, does that mean it is supported now?
