    I'm excited to see that there is a more extendible SettingsPane in the Q2 2013 release!

    I look forward to seeing some documentation about this in the future, in the mean time do you think it would be possible to get a very brief run down of what is now possible?

    Many Thanks

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for your question and kind words.
    The Settings Pane Documentation article will be published tomorrow, the same is true for some new Custom Settings Pane examples in our XAML SDK in GitHub. They will show most of the new features:

    • Easier Add/Remove of Tabs in SettingsPane. This can be achieved with overriding only 100 lines of XAML code.
    • Easier Edit of particular Tab in SettingsPane. Edit the style for a particular tab and apply it implicitly.
    This also enables easier replacement of the default collections of FontSizes, ColorStyles, StrokeDashArrayCollections, etc.
    • You will be able to open settings pane only on particular shapes/connections. Diagram.PreviewAdditionalContentEventActivated event will help you achieve this goal.
    • You will be able to bind properties of the SettingsPane directly to properties from the ViewModel.
    In our Drawing Sample you can see an edit of HomeTab - button "Add To Gallery" is added. It may be useful too. We appreciate any comments / suggestions regarding the new features in his control. Thank you in advance.
