WinForms & WPF Diagram Control - SVG Shape and Printing Support (Coming soon in v16.1)

Thinking Out Loud
23 May 2016
We've had some great feedback from all of you regarding our Visio-inspired Diagram Control and with this release, we've extended it with a few important features including: 


SVG Shapes Support

Both versions of the Diagram (WinForms and WPF) will now give you the option to use SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) as diagram shapes. As you can see in the image below, this opens up a wide range of opportunities to you when using the control.

DevExpress Diagram for WinForms and WPF - Custom SVG Shapes

Printing and Export to Raster

A much requested feature, DevExpress Diagram will allow you to print your diagram and define a custom print area size when necessary. Diagrams may be exported as well (PNG, JPEG, BMP and GIF).

Custom Layout Algorithms and Sugiyama-Style Layouts

When it comes to layout options, we've enhanced the Diagram Control to support

Custom layout algorithms
Ability to apply the layout algorithm to a portion of a diagram.
Sugiyama-Style Layout


Diagram Designer Enhancements


The Diagram Designer for both WinForms and WPF will ship with the following new capabilities:


Ability to apply themes
Change shape styles
Change page orientation and size
Customize line jumps (and yes, this release includes additional styles and settings for line jumps)

Nice! It will be possible create custom shapes based in user controls in this version? Or maybe shapes with images and different texts grouped?

Ian - no, unfortunately we've not considered a webforms variant.

Is it possible to export a list of shapes used on a sheet?

We'd like to add shapes to products and then use those shapes for a chart, and at confirmation a list of products used on this chart should be exported.
