The DevExpress Diagram Control provides a set of layout algorithms that you can use to automatically arrange shapes. This feature allows you and your end-users to quickly and effectively generate drawings, which can be manually fine-tuned afterwards.
End-users can apply automatic layout in the DiagramDesignerControl by clicking the Re-Layout Pageribbon item and selecting the desired algorithm and flow direction.
The following layout algorithms are available.
This algorithm draws hierarchical diagrams. It arranges shapes in a tree structure and aligns them evenly based on their hierarchical level.
This algorithm visualizes roles and relationships within an entity such as a company department. Shapes in the upper levels of hierarchy in the org chart layout are arranged using the tree graph algorithm. The OrgChartLayoutTreeLevelCount property specifies the number of layers in the tree section. The lower levels of hierarchy are arranged using the tip-over tree layout algorithm.
