    Hi, i'm trying to make application similar to ms.visio. I'm using RadDocking and make two RadPaneGroup in leftside and rightside. the leftside is for the list of drag&drop elements like shape,image or anything. the rightside is for the layout and i can save the layout.

    the leftside is like an icon with text and when we drag it, it will show the original image/shape.

    what is the best way to do that? is using RadDocking good enough? any specific controls or feature that can be used? 

    Thanks,

    Mirza

    Hello Mirza,

    What we believe is most suitable for your scenario is using RadDiagram. This is a control that provides you the ability to create flexible and interactive diagramming layout. The framework tools and features that provides could help you easily create a variety of diagramming solutions similar to MS Visio. It also provides a toolbox that could contain all the needed shapes.

    We suggest you to check the control in action from our online Silverlight demos (they are the same for WPF) and let us know if that is a control that suits your requirements.

    Hopes this helps.

    Thanks for the answer Nasko :)

    but i cant use the RadDiagramToolbox and alraedy ask about it in the RadDiagram Forum.

    i have another question about RadDiagram, should i ask here or make another thread in RadDiagramForum? btw this is the question

    - can we change the shape to image or anything in RadDiagram?

    - can we make RadDiagram inside the Docking? because i want to make a customize-able layout so maybe i should use docking or something?

    Hello Muhammad,

    I will go straight to your questions.

    1. You could create a custom Shape if there isn't a Shape you desired in the already build-in. Please, check the following article from our help documentation for some more detailed information:
    http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/controls/raddiagram/howto/create-custom-shape

    2. You could use RadDiagram inside RadDocking without any concerns. I have created a sample project that demonstrates that. Please, check it and let us know if that is what you are looking for.

    Also, indeed if you have any additional questions concerning RadDiagram it is better to be published in the Diagram forum - thus if some other member of the community has a similar question it will be easier for him to find it. The example also demonstrates that RadDiagramToolbox is used as expected on our side.

    Hopes this helps.
