The capabilities of MindFusion WinForms diagram control go way beyond building any type of flowchart, graph, hierarchy or tree. The control lets you use streetmaps, draw a plan of your interior, create gantt charts or fishbone diagrams. And supports 3D view.
The WinForms diagram control features more than 100 predefined node shapes.
Table (grid) objects can hold unlimited number of columns and rows.
The TreeViewNode-s are used to display hierarchical data.
A FreeFormNode collects all points from users' mouse or touch input and displays them as node's outline.
Containers hold other Node-s and can be nested one within another, the containment hierarchy depth is unlimited
Links can have various arrowhead shapes and you can associate such shapes with links origins and segment centers.
The VisioNode class can be used to present shapes from Visio stencils inside diagrams.
The SvgNode class extends DiagramNode to represent nodes that can display SVG drawings.
CompositeNode-s are graphical widgets similar to controls, which can be arranged in hierarchies.
The ControlNode class allows using any .NET Windows.Forms control as a node in the diagram
The MapNode class represents nodes that can render geographical maps. Map items can be selected.
You can choose among three CustomDraw modes: Additional, Full or ShadowOnly.
Save your preferred diagram outlook into an XML Theme or apply and customize one of the 40 predefined themes.
The Overview control provides a scaled-down view of a Diagram and allows scrolling and zooming with the mouse.
The Ruler control provides horizontal and vertical scales that helps users measure and align diagram items.
The Zoom control lets user change interactively the current zoom level and scroll position of the diagram.
The ShapeListBox lets users drag-and-drop a Shape to the diagram's canvas to create a new ShapeNode.
The Magnifier has customizable appearance and zoom factor and is triggered by a mouse action or key stroke.
The diagram pages can be activated through the tabs in the tray located at one of the four sides.
The LayerListView is a list box with Layer-s that hold diagram items. Layers can be hidden, active and unlimited in number.
The SwimlaneLayout class places diagram nodes that represent activities on swim-lanes that represent resources.
The AnnealLayout assigns costs to graph configurations and finding the minimum cost configuration.
The TopologicalLayout places nodes linearly and each node comes before all destination nodes of its outgoing links.
The OrthogonalLayout draws each link as a chain of alternating horizontal and vertical segments.
The LayeredLayout arranges diagram nodes in distinct horizontal or vertical layers based on several criteria.
An animated 3D version of the SpringLayout algorithm. You can rotate and pan the camera.
The radial tree layout is a method of displaying a tree structure in a way that expands outwards, radially.
The TreeLayout combines several algorithms that arrange diagram nodes in tree-like hierarchies.
The SpringLayout simulates a physical system in which nodes repulse each other and links act as confining springs.
The OneWayLayout ensures that links enter nodes from the same direction and exit them from the opposite side.
The EnableClusters property of SpringLayout makes diagrams laid out in distinct clusters as shown below.
CircularLayout distributes nodes evenly on the circumference of a circle at positions that have as few link crossing as possible.
CompositeLayout is a multi-level graph layout that combines several layout algorithms from the diagram library.
The FractalLayout is a tree layout that places child nodes symmetrically around their parent node.
The HierarchicalLayout places nodes on user-defined levels and all links have a single segment and do not intersect.
The GridLayout arranges diagram nodes in a grid, keeping connected nodes close together.
The TreeMapLayout class arranges hierarchical (tree-structured) data as a set of nested rectangles. Colors group items.
The WinForms diagram control includes various arrow routing options that rely on penalty values to calculate the cost of a route.
The CreateImage method lets you export .BMP, .PNG, JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, .TIFF files.
The DrawImporter class imports diagrams from .ODG files.
The PdfExporter class exports the diagram to a .PDF file.
Save your diagram with SvgExporter class into an .SVG class.
The ExcelExporter class saves the diagram into an .XLSX file.
Export Drawing Exchange Format (DXF) files with the DxfExporter class.
Export the diagram to .SWF with the SwfExporter class.
Export the diagram to .WMF with the WmfExporter class.
Use the PathFinder class to detect cycles and paths in a graph.
A classic flowchart arranged with the Decision layout.
The nodes in a Swim lane diagram are constrained to move only horizontally.
This diagram defines a dialogue that can be conducted by automated system.
This diagram supports hierarchical grouping and collapsing/expanding subtrees.
This diagram combines various text styling attributes.
The chart uses different arrowhead types and sizes as well expandable nodes.
Nodes hold images and custom painting is used to achieve the various visual effects.
Table nodes and perpendicular links are used to build this DB design chart.
A diagram with Bezier links, image nodes and transparent nodes that hold text.
Each class is presented with its methods, properties and fields. Different API members are painted in different colors.
Diagram nodes are styled through custom templates and support multiple images and text formats.
Use the diagram control to build a tree of all folders in a given directory and arrange them with the TreeLayout.
This diagram is built by derived node classes that implement custom drawing and custom interaction handling.
Use the DiagramView3D component to display a 3D model of the structural formula of a chemical compound.
This is an interactive flowchart that shows how objects operate with each another and in what order.
When you draw a link an intermediate node is created under the mouse and three helper links.
Use custom classes that inherit Diagram and DiagramNode to store additional data and implement custom interaction logic.
