How do I change the background of the diagram control?


The diagram control''s background is provided by the Diagram''s Model component. To change the background you will have to provide suitable values for the diagram.Model.BackgroundStyle property.

To set an image for the background you can assign the image to the diagram.Model.BackgroundStyle.Texture property, set the BackgroundStyle.Type as Texture and the TextureWrapMode to Tile, Clamp or one of the other options. The fllowing code should give you an idea,


this.diagramComponent.Model.BackgroundStyle.Texture = ((System.Drawing.Image)(resources.GetObject("diagramComponent.Model.BackgroundStyle.Texture")));

this.diagramComponent.Model.BackgroundStyle.Type = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.BackgroundStyleType.Texture;


Private Me.diagramComponent.Model.BackgroundStyle.Texture = (CType(resources.GetObject("diagramComponent.Model.BackgroundStyle.Texture"), System.Drawing.Image))

Private Me.diagramComponent.Model.BackgroundStyle.Type = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.BackgroundStyleType.Texture

For additional information:

Please refer to the Class Reference documentation on the Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.Model.BackgroundStyle property and the Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.BackgroundStyle class for additional details on setting the diagram background.
