Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v20.1.Core.dll

Declaration

void ConnectStartPoint(
    Shape connectedShape,
    int connectionSite
)
Sub ConnectStartPoint(
    connectedShape As Shape,
    connectionSite As Integer
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
connectedShape Shape

A Shape object that is a drawing object to connect to.

connectionSite Int32

An integer that is the index number of a shapes' connection site to which the connector should be attached.

Remarks

Check the drawing object's connection sites number using the ShapeGeometry.ConnectionSiteCount property. The connection sites' index number starts from 0 and grows as you move counterclockwise.

Examples

The code sample below shows how to insert a shape connector, provide it with arrows, change the outline color and attach it to shapes. Both ends are connected to the third connection site of each shape.

Spreadsheet_AddShapeConnector

// Insert a shape connector.
Shape shapeConnector = worksheet.Shapes.AddConnector(ConnectorType.Curved, 10, 10, 100, 100);
// Adjust the connector's outline.
shapeConnector.Outline.SetSolidFill(Color.Black);
shapeConnector.Outline.Width = 2.5;

// Convert the connector's ends into arrows.
ConnectorFormat connectorFormat = shapeConnector.ConnectorFormat;
connectorFormat.Arrows.StartArrowheadType = ArrowheadType.Stealth;
connectorFormat.Arrows.StartArrowheadWidth = ArrowheadSize.Large;
connectorFormat.Arrows.StartArrowheadLength = ArrowheadSize.Large;

connectorFormat.Arrows.EndArrowheadType = ArrowheadType.Stealth;
connectorFormat.Arrows.EndArrowheadWidth = ArrowheadSize.Large;
connectorFormat.Arrows.EndArrowheadLength = ArrowheadSize.Large;

// Bind the connector to two shapes.
connectorFormat.ConnectStartPoint(shape1, 3);
connectorFormat.ConnectEndPoint(shape2, 3);
