It is possible to apply this functionality to a XAF web app ?

@Rubén: Sure, that is possible. A common practice to use custom controls for presenting and editing data properties or lists of objects is to implement custom PropertyEditor and ListEditor classes. Technically, they are just wrappers around custom controls that are required for integration into XAF infrastructure.

Hi Paul,

No it cannot save a cropped image because it's not an image editor tool but an image display tool.

Looks like a really powerful control, especially linking up to Navigator, unfortunately struggling to get this working in ASP Single Page Application......
