    The diagram shapes can be customized through visual templates. This allows you to choose the shape at run-time, based on actual data.
    See the editing demo, specifically the handling of the "President" shape. This is also where you handle content formatting.

    The connections in the same demo are bound dynamically using a connections data source.
    The API Reference shows how to bind connection labels as well.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.
