The Diagram.Windows\Samples\Symbol Design\PortsAhoy sample that ships with the product shows how to create and add new ports to a symbol.

C#

// Center the port on the symbol

CirclePort port = new CirclePort(pt);

mysymbol.Ports.Add(port);

port.Location = pt;

VB

Private mysymbol As Symbol ' Symbol reference

' Center the port on the symbol

Private pt As PointF = New PointF(mysymbol.X + mysymbol.Width / 2, mysymbol.Y + mysymbol.Height / 2)

Private port As CirclePort = New CirclePort(pt)

mysymbol.Ports.Add(port)

Private port.Location = pt
