    Do you have any plans for a whiteboard component?

    Hello hwsoderlund,

    Could you please provide some more details on the exact features you would expect from such a component?

    Best wishes,

    Sure. Here are a few ideas, just off the top of my head. The bold items are more important for me than the rest.
    • Text blocks with basic formatting, preferably draggable, and preferably with customizable borders/backgrounds.
    • Basic drawing functionality such as pencil, brush, lines, circles, rectangles etc. Of course with color selection for lines and fill.
    • Line thickness selection.
    • Being able to move the objects around the board would be nice.
    • Connecting objects with some sort of connector lines, pretty much like the map structure in SketchFlow, if you are familiar with that.
    • Some basic shapes, such as arrows and icons that can be dragged/dropped on to the board.
    • Support for uploading images and dragging them onto the stage.
    • XAML export (necessary for saving a drawing)
    • Printing
    • Magic marker/highlight functionality
    • Collaboration support. This is a big one, and I am not sure how it should be implemented. Full collaboration functionality out of the box would require a service running duplex WCF or something similar. Alternatively, perhaps Telerik could provide us customers with an API and some sample code. Then we could handle the back-end stuff ourselves.
