Hi Mani,

Thanks for choosing Syncfusion Products.

MeasureUnit is one of the argument of Rectangle class. For your requirement we can specify the MeasureUnits as MeasureUnits.Millimeter.The below code illustrate this.

Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.Rectangle r = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.Rectangle(100,50,100, 50, MeasureUnits.Millimeter);

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Mani,

All the graphics objects are Pixel Based representation units.The Diagram Control also Pixel Based Measurement.So whatever measure unit we specify it will convert to pixel.

For your requirement Measurement.MilliMeter , before drawing rectangle the system will convert into equivalent pixel representation.The below is the method used for conversion.

MeasureUnitsConverter.ToPixels(rectBounds, MeasureUnit.MilliMeter);

Thanks & Regards,
