MindFusion ASP.NET Pack 2013.R2 has been released. It adds the following new features:

MindFusion.Diagramming for WebForms

Import OpenOffice Draw files
The DrawImporter class can import .odg files, created by the OpenOffice Draw vector graphics editor. In order to use it, you must add a reference to the MindFusion.Diagramming.Import.Draw.dll assembly. Various overloads of the Import method can be used to import the OpenOffice drawing into a DiagramDocument whose pages correspond to the Draw pages, or into a single Diagram whose content is merged from all imported pages. DrawImporter supports shapes from the General and Flowchart shape palettes in Draw. For each node shape from the .odg file, the importer creates a ShapeNode object whose Shape, Text, Brush and Pen properties are set to values corresponding to the imported OpenOffice shape. For each connector shape, the importer creates a DiagramLink object whose Origin and Destination are set to the corresponding imported nodes, and whose ControlPoints reflect the geometry of the connector.

Canvas mode improvements
  • Glass and Aero visual effects
  • radial gradients
  • support for custom node types
  • multiple labels per link
  • The HyperLink property of DiagramItem is now supported in Canvas mode. Hyperlinks can be accessed on the client side by calling the getHyperLink() method of objects.
  • AppletStartedScript client side events are now raised in Canvas mode.
  • The Overview control no longer creates a Div element on the page, which avoids problems when the overview is created inside a popup window or iframe.The LinkHitDistance property is now supported in Canvas mode.
  • The CanvasVirtualScroll property of DiagramView enables virtual scroll mode.
  • NodeSelectedScript and LinkSelectedScript client-side events
  • NodeDeselectedScript and LinkDeselectedScript client-side events
  • NodeDoubleClickedScript and LinkDoubleClickedScript client-side events
  • resizeToFitText method available in JavaScript ShapeNode class

ContainerNode improvements
  • child nodes are now drawn by their containers; when containers overlap, the children of a lower container cannot appear in front of the upper container anymore
  • the ClipChildren property specifies whether to clip child items to containerís boundaries
  • the ZIndex property no longer changes automatically when dropping nodes into a container
  • the Visible property of child items no longer changes when folding or unfolding containers; this lets you keep invisible items inside containers

  • The MeasureUnit property now supports Centimeter and WpfPoint values. The latter allows loading diagram files saved by WPF and Silverlight versions of the control with their default units.
  • SwimlaneLayout now honors the Anchoring.Keep property value.
  • New line and quote characters in Tag strings are now escaped when passed to client-side click events in ImageMap mode, avoiding script errors.
  • Fixed security exception in ASP.NET 4 version of VisioImporter.
  • Silverlight front-end is no longer supported, the respective ClientSideMode enumeration member has been removed.

MindFusion.Charting for WebForms

Chart themes are now represented as XML files that can be saved and loaded using SaveTheme and LoadTheme methods. There is a theme editor tool included that facilitates creation and editing of chart themes. The control provides an initial set of 8 predefined themes.

Major/Minor Axis Ticks
You can divide the scale of any chart axis more precisely with the new MajorTickLength and MinorTickLength properties. Set them to a value greater than 0 and the control draws ticks not only at the scale intervals but also among them. The number of minor axis ticks in each interval is set with MinorTicksPerInterval. The ticks are drawn with MajorTickPen and MinorTickPen.

Now all chart types support tool tips. Area charts in particular can show a different tooltip for every region between two adjacent data points.

Edit Chart Data Interactively
Line and bar chart elements can be dragged with the mouse. Bars can be dragged either in horizontal or vertical direction according to their orientation. Line chart points can be dragged in any direction. The dragging behavior is set with the Behavior property.

Edit Pie Charts Interactively
Pies in 2D and 3D pie charts can now be resized with the mouse. Set AllowEdit to true to let users change the values of each two adjacent pie pieces by dragging their common border with the mouse. The HitTestAngleOffset property sets the deviation, in degrees, at which the user can click around the pieces border and the click would still be considered as a click on the border.

Support for Undefined Data Values
You can now use null (undefined) values in your data for all charts. There are several options how the control handles the null values - see the HandleEmptyValue property and the HandleEmptyValue enumeration.
