Hi all,

I have seen very few examples of the diagram control in the WPF Control demo that gets installed.  I think there are only 2 and 1 is just a theming demo.  Given the potential for this tool I think that is a shame; anyway...

I need to build an application that allows users to search for objects from a database.  They can then drag objects from the search results onto a diagram control where all the immediate relationships coming from those are drawn and laid out.  There is, as always, a slight twist in the fact these objects are effectively entities and any one entity can have more than one role (just names really) but the important things is an entity can have one or more relationships and a role can have one or more relationships.

I therefore need to diagram an objects relationships to other objects, baring in mind that if the object is an entity it can also have roles which have relationships and vice versa.

I'd appreciate it if someone could take the time to help get me started with a sample application that basically provides the above functionality which I can then grow on.  If anyone has experience developing something similar then I'd also be interested in any advice and lessons learnt...


Thanks,
Drammy

Hello Drammy,

If you are able to illustrate your relationships with RadDiagramConnection controls it will be easy to implement your requirements. You will be able to use our layout algorithms to layout your custom graph created, based on the search results that your data base returned. For the drag and drop logic you can extend the Diagram toolbox  SDK project. You can take a look at the rest of our SDK projects where we demonstrated different approaches that can be used in applications. Also, there are some interesting functionalities exposed in our Online Demos. You can take a look at the Swimlane and the TableShape projects.

I hope that this information will help you get started.

Thanks for the response, I'll give all that a try.

I had absolutely no idea about these XAML sdk repositories.  Are there any other hidden gems, other than the forums, blogs, demos and now the sdk projects?


Thanks,

Hello Drammy,

You can take a look at our WPF and SL code library sections. However, you need to know that our XAML SDK and QSF (SL online demo projects) are the resources that are most frequently updated.

Hello,

You are right that the Swimlane example is part of our QSF, only. It is not exposed in our SDK. You will be able to download its source code only if you have licence. You will be able to access the source code of our controls as well as the source of our QSF examples.
