    Hi

    Do we have any component that would help to build a static image from code.
    eg. like a computer network diagram with connecting points.

    We will have a parent child relationship of nodes in a database,
    and from that we would like to buid a diagram and present it on web as a image.

    Alternative suggestions are welcome.

    Regards
    JD

    Hello J.,

    We do not offer a diagramming component as part of our ASP.NET AJAX suite. The only workaround I can propose is discussed in this forum post (note that you can anchor the docks to prohibit the end user from eidint the relations between the items).

    Apologies for not being able to provide more elegant solution.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks Sebastian,

    But what we want is just to build image representation from given data.  User is not going to edit diagram.
    Eg.
    Key     ParentKey
    A              -
    B             A
    C             A

    then we should be able to build a static image like below  (this is just a text representation, what we acutally want is a diagram with flowlines )
    |------- A ------|
    B                  C

    and we are looking for a solution for ASP.NET and not WinForms.

    Regards
    JD.

    Hi J.,

    As I explained, we do not have such an AJAX component. You may consider using an open source diagramming tool like this one, if applicable for your scenario.

    Kind regards,

    Hi all
    I would like to support the high demand for such a component.
    Graphical visualisation of data gets more and more important.

    I'm working with Telerik components and I have integrated 
    a freeware for visualizing networks. based on an XML Export.  
    This is very maintenance intensive.

    Since X-mas is not so far, my wish would be such a component :-)

    Infragistics has one now: http://www.infragistics.com/dotnet/netadvantage/wpf/data-visualization/network-node.aspx#Overview

    Regards,

    Hello Peter,

    Thanks for the feedback - I will forward it to our XAML team to take it into account. It is likely to contemplate the creation of a diagraming tool which to enrich our XAML portfolio for the future versions of our XAML suites.

    Best regards,

    Hi,

    I'll second the request for a Flow Diagram component.  I'm currently using Telerik Controls to build some reporting applications, and the only functionality not covered by Telerik, is a Flow Diagram.    Searching the web shows a lot requests for Flow Diagramming components, but a small number of solutions.  Could be a winner if Telerik created such a component that was as easy to use as their other tools.
