    We are interested in using this component within our Silverlight application and plan on saving the diagram so that the user can recall it and continue work on it at a later time.  Is the save-output from the diagram control cross-compatible with the other web versions (ie: / kendo) of the diagram control if we decided to move to that in the future.

    Hello Jarred,

    The swift answer of your question is no. If you create a diagram in Silverlight, save it as XML and try to load it in other platform this will not work out of the box. The reason for that is the string that is used to same the different diagrams. Our Silverlight diagrams use XML objects as our Kendo and AJAX diagrams use JSON strings.

    However, you can try creating custom XML to JSON converter to load Silverlight diagram into Kendo or AJAX.
