The new release of Diagramming for Silverlight provides two new layouts and a few other new features. Here is an overview:
Tree map layout
Tree maps represent hierarchies by nesting child nodes within their parents, where the areas of leaf nodes are proportional to their Weight values. Unlike other layout algorithms, TreeMapLayout expects hierarchies to be defined via grouping or containment (see AttachTo method and ContainerNode class), and will ignore any links in the diagram. The diagram area covered by the topmost nodes in a hierarchy is specified via the LayoutArea property. By default, the layout tries to keep the ratio of node sides as close as possible to one.
Decision flowchart layout
DecisionLayout arranges simple flowcharts consisting of decision boxes with up to three outgoing links per node and activity boxes with a single outgoing link per node. The nodes are arranged in columns and rows, whose distance depends on the HorizontalPadding and VerticalPadding property values. When links share the same row or column, they are placed at a distance specified via LinkPadding. The layout arranges nodes recursively starting from StartNode.
~ Layout algorithms now automatically resize diagram’s Bounds if it’s not large enough to fit the arranged content.
~ LinkLabels are now copied by DiagramLink copy constructor and clipboard methods.
~ ContainerNode now displays a caption bar when its Shape is set to Rectangle or RoundRect.
