This tutorial is about improving the WPF Diagram Designer which can be found completly with sourcecode on CodeProject under the following URL: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/24681/WPF-Diagram-Designer-Part. As the diagram designer is quite powerful but not so easy to understand, there seem to be many questions how it can be extended with additional functionality.
You did not look for an article about extending the codeproject diagram designer? Commercial controls can be found from the following vendors.
- Telerik WPF Diagram
- Infragistics WPF Diagram
- GoXam WPD Diagram
- Mindscape WPF Diagram (seems to base on the codeproject)
If you didn’t see the codeproject-article so far, have a look at the screenshot below to see how the diagram designer looks.
The article goes from fixing bugs to extending cool new features like
- Labels on the DesignerItems
- Curved connections
- Snap to grid
- and many more.
