VCL Org Chart - Minor Enhancements Coming

24 August 2010

For those of you who are using the ExpressOrgChart Control for Delphi and C++Builder, the DevExpress VCL Team will be introducing a couple of new enhancements to the Org Chart Control in the next update. The changes are straightforward -

  1. Antialiasing for curves/lines/arcs using GDI+ 
  2. Support for DevExpress VCL Skins-Themes (This feature will be available for those customers who have licensed our skinning engine).
  3. New component editor with skins support, DevExpress Editors, and new icons. (This feature will be available for customers who have a license to our skins & editors library).

The component will be updated in VCL Build 53.

...And here are some samples of the new look of the Org Chart Control...

Stefan and Colin: Currently, we don't have plans to extend our .NET product line with the Org Chart control, sorry.

Arturo and Daniel: Yes, we're going to add skin support to the ExpressFlowChart as well, in Build 54 or later.

 Thank you for this update - we have an upcoming large project (for us) for a large hydro company that this will be useful for.  However, the company will go forward using the orgchart if the rotation has the root on the right.  We have looked for another component like the orgchart for this project, but cannot find it.  We may be forced to draw charts in Excel using automation (client request, we would prefer orgchart) which will make the project cost three times as much.  If you could extend the rotation property to include having the root node on the right, it would make a world of difference for us.

Warm regards,

Kurt Dehnel

Updating VCL Flowchart would really give a true makeover to my app.

This is great news!  I have also left a request  in the forums a few months or so ago to have the rotate feature upgraded to include having the root node on the right side in particular and perhaps while you are at it on the bottom as well.  It would be a world of difference to us if you included a view with the root node on the right.  

Thanks for the upgraded nice view!
