How do I set custom position for a Label?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: Diagram |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |

We can adjust the label position by setting the Position as Custom type. Then we have to set the Offset values for the X,Y co-ordinates to specify the label position.


// Setting custom position for a label

outerRect.Labels.Add(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.Label());

outerRect.Labels[0].Text = "Rectangle";

outerRect.Labels[0].Position = Position.Custom;

outerRect.Labels[0].OffsetX = 50;

outerRect.Labels[0].OffsetY= 65;


''Setting custom position for a label

outerRect.Labels.Add(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Diagram.Label())

outerRect.Labels(0).Text = "Rectangle"

outerRect.Labels(0).Position = Position.Custom

outerRect.Labels(0).OffsetX = 50

outerRect.Labels(0).OffsetY= 65

Please refer the sample in the below link which illustrates the above: http://websamples.syncfusion.com/samples/KB/Diagram.Windows/70249/main.htm
