Interesting Diagram Generation Controls

Some time from now I was searching for controls that would made the generation of diagrams of several kinds, like for instance::

  • Network Diagram
  • Worlflow Diagram
  • Database Diagram
  • Hierarchy Diagram

  Basically I was trying to find a control that would solve the problem of having to search for different controls depending on the type of diagrams I would need in my projects, an in this case the project was in Silverlight. After a lot of research and a lot of CodeProject and others that would just fit a specific problem, I came across one that solved exactly what I was needing, and I found it on MindFusion named DiagramLite.

  The DiagramLite is a quite interesting control since it provides a way for us to make available any kind of diagram in Silverlight and with the possibility of editing that diagram, and this makes it possible to create a new Workflow designer for our solutions using Silverlight. (Of course I now that this was done without this control, but it seems to me that it would be a lot easier with it, but this is just from my experience).

  You can find samples here.

  Along with the Silverlight version I also found that they also have several other versions for WPF, WinForms, ASP.NET, .Net Compact Framework and even Java, and for this it seems that they are pretty experts into the Diagram controls, and it’s pretty interesting since their support is pretty quick as well as clear.

  I hope this post comes handy for you, since when it was me I had to to do a lot of searching and testing for several possibilities.
