    It would be great to be first to market with a diagram control for SilverLight. Even a basic control with force-directed ability.

    Similar to this:

    Hi AK,

    Thanks for your interest in our RadControls for Silverlight.

    As our controls will be completely lookless and styleble you will be able to build your very custom layout using styles and control templates. For example, you will be able to build a horizontal treeview.

    Our QSF examples will be publicly available by the end of this week and such a horizontal treeview will be shown there.

    Kind regards,
    Nick

    I think the idea is not a treeview control, but a diagram control... I add my vote for a diagram control :-)

    Hello Martin de Ruiter,

    your vote has been counted :). However for the moment we do not plan to release such a control. Actually I believe this is more like an application scenario, rather than a control. Other than that, Silverlight seems to be pretty good platform for delivering such kind of apps.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    There are some other diagram controls on the market, for example http://www.nevron.com/Products.DiagramFor.NET.Overview.aspx. So I guess it could work as a control (instead of an application), just like the charting control. And in Silverlight you of course would have some nice abilities to play with the visual stuff.

    Yes, I see it as a control rather than app. There are a few diagram control vendors on the market for asp.net but none for Silverlight. I believe Silverlight offers some great client side capabilities for a diagram control. Considering I'll be spending over $2000 just for a diagram control shortly, it's certainly worth at least another look for Telerik and Silverlight.
