How can I progammatically add a symbol from the palette?

The following code sample demonstrates how you can progamatically add a symbol from the symbol palette to a Diagram.


//New InsertNodesCmd InsertNodesCmd insCmd = new InsertNodesCmd();
//Select the Symbol from the PaletteGroupView this.paletteGroupView1.SelectSymbolModel(this.paletteGroupView1.GroupViewItems[1].Text); SymbolModel symModel = this.paletteGroupView1.SelectedSymbolModel;
//New NodeCollection NodeCollection nodes = new NodeCollection();
//Add Symbol to the NodeCollection if (symModel != null) {  Symbol triangle = symModel.CreateSymbol();  nodes.Add(triangle);
} insCmd.Nodes.Concat(nodes); insCmd.Location = new PointF(125,125); //ExecuteCommand to add the Symbol this.diagram1.Controller.ExecuteCommand(insCmd);



'New InsertNodesCmd Dim insCmd As New InsertNodesCmd()
'Select the Triangle from the PaletteGroupView Me.paletteGroupView1.SelectSymbolModel(Me.paletteGroupView1.GroupViewItems(1).Text) Dim symModel As SymbolModel = Me.paletteGroupView1.SelectedSymbolModel 'new NodeCollection Dim nodes As New NodeCollection() 'Add Symbol to the NodeCollection If Not (symModel Is Nothing) Then     Dim triangle As Symbol = symModel.CreateSymbol()     nodes.Add(triangle) End If insCmd.Nodes.Concat(nodes) insCmd.Location = New PointF(125, 125) 'Execute the InsertNodesCmd Me.diagram1.Controller.ExecuteCommand(insCmd)
