public bool? AllowEditItems { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to allow the end-user to enter the text editing mode; otherwise, false.


Setting the AllowEditItems property to false doesn’t prevent the end-user from editing an item text in the Properties Panel.

You can restrict end-user operations by setting the DiagramControl.IsReadOnly property to true. Setting the desired diagram protection options (listed in the DiagramControl.IsReadOnly property’s description) to true overrides the IsReadOnly property.
