I'm evaluating your diagram control and have a few questions.
I'll post each question separate so it's easier to find it via the subject. Thanks for your help in advance..

I need a node(rectangle or polyline) with a centered label. Property AllowRotate is set to True.
If the user rotates the node, I want the label text to stay horizontal readable.
I think you already answered a similar question for a label of a connector which could be the solution I'm looking for with this sample:
Although this sample is in C# and I'm using VB, I think I could get the solution from this sample.
The problem is, I cannot download this sample; the link doesn't work, and I also had no luck with downloading each file separatly from the folder F93710 which still exists.

Thanks a lot for your help,
