Hi,

I'd like to position a Shape's text outside of the shape itself. Can this be accomplished in WPF? I found a similar issue in the WinForms forum but the solution is not applicable.

Hello Renier,

The shape controls in RadDiagram doesn't support this behavior out of the box. To achieve it, you can use a couple of approaches. 

The first one is to use two shapes - one for the shape (with a geometry) and another one positioned on top holding the text only. Then you can group the shapes to interact with both at the same time when dragging.

The second approach that I can suggest is to use a single shape, but define its geometry smaller, so that it looks like the text is outside of its bounds. However, in this case the selection adorner will cover also the text part.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,
