MindFusion.WinForms Pack, 2017.R2

Print Post  
MindFusion Pack for WinForms 2017.R2 has been released. It adds the following new features:


  • OuterLabelRotation and InnerLabelRotation properties of BarChart and bar series renderer classes let you set custom label rotation angles.
  • StackOuterLabels property of BarChart and BarStackRenderer specifies whether outer labels are displayed stacked on top of stacked bars.
  • The YLabelAlignment property of BiaxialChart specifies horizontal alignment of Y-axis labels.
  • Fix for data-bound series in horizontal bar charts binding only to a single Y-values column.


Export Excel files
The ExcelExporter class from MindFusion.Diagramming.Export.Excel.dll assembly exports diagrams to Excel Open XML Format (XLSX) files. Diagrams are exported as Excel AutoShapes drawings. The Export overload that takes a DiagramDocument parameter creates a sheet for each DiagramPage in the document. The Export(Diagram) overload creates a single Excel sheet.

Visio2013Exporter improvements
  • Visio2013Exporter processes links' arrowheads.
  • Visio2013Exporter preserves the diagram Z order.
  • Visio2013Exporter exports links' Text and Labels.
  • Visio2013Exporter exports Image of ShapeNode objects.

Non-blocking layout methods
All graph layout classes now contain an async ArrangeAsync method that runs layout calculations in a background task. This is only available in .NET 4.5 build of the diagram assemblies.

Select All
async void OnLayoutLayered(object sender, EventArgs e)
    var layout = new LayeredLayout();
    await layout.ArrangeAsync(diagram);

  • ImagePadding property of ShapeNode, TableNode and Cell lets you set padding space between element's borders and the contained Image.
  • LinkPadding property added to LayeredLayout specifies how much space to leave between links when LinkType is set to Cascading.
  • ContainerNodes now apply the TextPadding value.
  • Merge indicators for cascading links now supported as counter-parts of branch indicators from the 6.4.3 release. Set the LinkMergeIndicator property to specify the indicator shapes and MergeIndicatorColor and MergeIndicatorSize properties to customize their appearance.
  • Custom element added to BranchIndicator enumeration. If it's assigned to LinkBranchIndicator or LinkMergeIndicator, the control raises DrawBranchIndicator event to let you draw custom indicator graphics.
  • Export overloads that write to Stream objects added to PdfExporter, VisioExporter and Visio2013Exporter.
  • PageAdding validation event added too TabbedDiagramView control.
  • Public Item property of TreeViewConnectionPoint provides access to target TreeViewItem of links.
  • Vertical scrollbar is displayed on the left side of DiagramView when RightToLeft is enabled.


Improved font support
The Font properties of the report and various report items are now obsolete. They are replaced by FontName, FontSize, and FontStyle properties. It is now easier to change the font size or style of a label without replacing the entire label font. This way, changing the default font name will reflect on report items which have had their font size or style changed.

Improved measure unit support
Changing the measure unit of existing reports is now more fluent and does not require resizing of existing items in order to accommodate. Various properties are now expressed in millimeters and not in report units. For example, PaperSize and Margins.

New and updated samples
All samples have been overhauled and new samples have been added to demonstrate additional features of the report.

  • Several bug fixes.

Installer for the latest version can be downloaded here, or from the clients area on our site:

Updated assemblies are also available as MindFusion.Pack NuGet package.
