Can I host Windows Forms Controls inside a Diagram?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: Diagram


Yes, Essential Diagram has a Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.ControlNode node class that will let you host Windows Forms controls inside a diagram. The ControlNode type can serve as a container for just about any type of Windows Forms control, and can be used as the child node of a symbol, or as a top-level child of the diagram model itself. ControlNodes can be created and activated using the interactive Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.ControlNodeTool. Control activation is determined by the ControlNode.ActivateStyle property.

The 'QuickStart\ControlsGalore' sample that ships with Essential Diagram demonstrates the ControlNode and ControlNodeTool classes.
