Information-Rich Diagrams

Create elegant diagrams, flow, and org charts

The DevExpress WPF Diagram control allows you to incorporate fully customizable diagrams within any WPF software project. Our WPF Diagram component allows users to draw diagrams from scratch, load visualizations from an XML file, or generate visual relationships from a data source.

Our WPF Diagram control includes over 130 shapes, images, containers, connectors, and lists. You can also import SVG graphics and use them as a basis for custom shapes. Default shapes include:

  • Basic Shapes
  • FlowChart Shapes
  • SDL Diagram Shapes

Connectors & Routing

Shape it and route it automatically

Our WPF Diagram Connector tool helps you connect any two shapes or points directly on its canvas. You can customize line color, weight, and style, control the look of end points and arrows. You can curve or angle connectors as needed and can manage connection points in a variety of ways. You can also add, edit, or delete text for your connector.

When you use our automatic connector routing option, you don't have to manually rearrange connectors and shapes. The connector will route itself around shapes that are in the way and it will find the best point on which to connect to a shape.
