Node and Edge Data Sources

  • 4 minutes to read

Use the NodeDataSourceID and EdgeDataSourceID properties (or NodeDataSource and EdgeDataSource in code behind) to supply node and edge lists to the ASPxDiagram control.

View Example Run Demo

Specify the following basic properties that allow the control to create a diagram:

Additionally, you can specify a number of optional binding properties for nodes and edges.

When you bind to data, the control creates a shape for every bound node and a connector for every bound edge.
