Let me first thank to Shawn, because he posted some very helpful resources in this thread.
Manfred, I am glad to hear that you managed to find a solution for your case. Alternatively, as Shawn already suggested, to prevent the diagram router to search for the closest connector you can explicitly set the connector to which the connection will be attached. This can be done via the TargetConnectorPosition and SourceConnectorPosition properties of RadDiagramConnection. The properties are of type string and expect the Name of a connector. For example:
"Left" is the Name of one of the default connectors.
Currently, the AStarRouter is not very flexible when it comes to customization so you can't override some of its methods. Instead, you could implement new router using the IRouter interface and use the AStarRouter code as a reference.
Can you also tell me what exactly you mean by extra Layouter? I am not sure what you mean, but if you clarify this we will consider updating our help documentation according to this.
In the rest of my reply I want to address the Manfred's feedback.
Manfred, we are more than happy to hear that you are using the Telerik products for so long now. And we are sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the provided support service. If you have any particular feedback in regards to the support we will be very glad to share it with us.
About the delayed messages you mentioned in your previous replies, please keep in mind that the UI for WPF forum doesn't fall in the scope of our support service
. This means that the forums are not bound to a specific time frame and you cannot expect to receive an answer from the support team. I can assure your that we are trying to help as much as we can to our community, but this doesn't necessarily guarantee an answer. To get a reply in the standard 24 hours time frame I would suggest you to open a new support ticket from telerik.com.
If you have further questions, do not hesitate to ask.
