Hello,

I want to use a diagram to display a simple hierarchy, exactly like the "basic usage" demo:  http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/diagram

Users should NOT be able to move, resize, drag, connect, etc.

However, when an item is selected, I would like to show the menu like in the "Editing" example - with buttons to edit the properties of the item, as well as delete the item.

1. Is it possible to have the menu without setting up datasource configuration for connections?  (i.e. just specifying .Children("..."))

2. Can you add custom actions (buttons) to that menu?  

Thanks

Hello Justin,

Currently, the Diagram will not allow the user to move, resize etc only when the editable property is set to false.

Regarding the questions:

1) If there is not dataSource set for the connection all changes will not be reflected on the server.

2) Custom buttons can be added to the editable menu:
