DiagramBuilder.CustomShapes(Action<CollectionFactory<DiagramCustomShapeBuilder>>) Method

Provides access to the client-side customShapes option that represents a custom shape collection.

Namespace: DevExtreme.AspNet.Mvc.Builders

Assembly: DevExtreme.AspNet.Core.dll

Declaration

public DiagramBuilder CustomShapes(
    Action<CollectionFactory<DiagramCustomShapeBuilder>> configurator
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
configurator Action<CollectionFactory<DiagramCustomShapeBuilder>>

A function that allows you to add items to the collection.

Returns

Type Description
DiagramBuilder

A reference to this instance after the method is called.

Remarks

To configure a custom shape collection, use a multiline lambda expression. In this case, a lambda parameter performs the role of a collection factory, and its Add() method adds a new item to the collection. The Add() method returns DiagramCustomShapeBuilder whose methods you can use to configure an item.

@(Html.DevExtreme().Diagram()
    .CustomShapes(customShapes => {
        customShapes.Add(); // call methods to configure a custom shape
        customShapes.Add();
    })
)
