    Will this diagram handle many to many relationships between items?  So, if I have 5 circle items and they all relate (so have a connector to) each other will the diagram display properly?  I see in one of your examples you use a hierarchy template.  Are we limited to a hierarchy (1 to many) or are there other templates that would allow for my requested many to many relationship using binding?

    Hi Koel,

     In terms of UI you can have shapes connected to many other shapes. Same is true with he ViewModels - you can have ShapeViewModel with Collection of ShapeViewModels representing the Shapes to which the shape is connected. The tricky question is how do you need to arrange such shapes ? Our Tree Layout Type expects a tree structure whereas many shapes connected to many shapes represents a graph but not a tree. What type of Layout do you need ?
    You can take a look at our Layout Demo in our XAML SDK in GitHub and let us know what is the closest Layout type to your requirements.
