Hi Stoyo,
Thanks for your help previously. Let me add, it was great.
I am working with mindfussion. diagramming diagram. what I do is when I save the diagram nodes in the database. I save the z index of each node with it. Now when I retrieve the data, add the node which I get in the collection from database. The nodes do contains the z index as per which they are saved, but on screen, the nodes are haphazardly placed. That is to say, if a node A has z index 2, it get placed behind node B, which has z index 1.
But as soon as I add another node in the diagram, each node in the diagram gets arranged as they should.
Can anyone please tell me how I make the nodes to get arrange in UI as per their z index when they are loaded?
Thanks in advance. Smiley

Hi,

It sounds as if you are seeing the effect of the SelectionOnTop property. Either disable it, or do not select new items (see also SelectAfterCreate property).

I hope that helps,
Stoyan

Sorry, I now see we haven't implemented this in Silverlight. We'll try to add it for next release.

Hi,

Are you using the version 3 beta or an older version? Older versions accept as ZIndex values only numbers between 0 and diag.Items.Count -1, and if you aren't adding the items in increasing order sorted by their saved ZIndex, you won't be able to restore the original Z order. You shouldn't have that problem with version 3, where ZIndex property can contain arbitrary values.
