MindFusion has released Diagramming for WPF, V3.0.5. Here is an overview of the new as well improved features:
Export of Visio 2013 files
You can now export the content of your Diagram and DiagramDocument objects to Visio 2013 VSDX files. In order to use the exporter, you must add a reference to the MindFusion.Diagramming.Wpf.VisioExport.dll assembly. Currently, the exporter supports shapes from the basic Visio stencil. Support for more shapes will be added upon request.
- The importer 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.
- Visio NURBS curves are now imported as Bezier-style links
- Shapes with a ‘hidden’ attribute in master definition are now imported as invisible items.
- The Item argument of ImportItem event handlers is now pre-set to a DiagramItem instance created for the imported Visio shape, letting you avoid parsing some standard data such as Bounds or Text. You can either modify this item’s properties, or replace it with a new instance of a different type.
- as well a few bug fixes – see the list here.
- the SetSelfLoopShape event is raised when a link becomes a self-loop, giving you a chance to set
a custom shape for the link.
- LinkLabels are now copied by DiagramLink copy constructor and clipboard methods.
- Fixed LinkLabel positioning along Bezier links.
- as well othrer new features – see further details here.
