We have released a new version of Diagramming for Java Swing. Here is an overview of the new features:
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.
The CompositeNode class implements nodes whose appearance can be defined via composition of components and layout containers. The content of a composite node can be loaded from XML files similar to .NET Xaml templates and Android XML layouts. Read further details about composite nodes in JDiagram here.
Export of Visio 2013 files
You can now export the content of Diagram and DiagramDocument objects to Visio 2013 VSDX files. First, you must import the com.mindfusion.diagramming.export namespace. Currently, the exporter supports shapes from Visio basic stencil. Support for more shapes will be added upon request.
- Improved PdfExporter performance.
- VisioImporter now supports Visio group shapes. Child shapes in groups are no longer lost when
importing, and their corresponding diagram nodes are attached to the corresponding group node.
The trial version is available for download from the following link:
