Property Value

Type Default Description


A string value that is the name of the template.


By default, the uppermost connector and diagram item defined in XAML within the DiagramDataBindingControllerBase.TemplateDiagram are used as templates for the connectors and diagram items representing data objects.

You can use the DiagramDataBindingControllerBase.GenerateItem and DiagramDataBindingControllerBase.GenerateConnector events to implement custom logic for choosing the item and connector template. To do this, create diagram items/connectors in the DiagramDataBindingControllerBase.TemplateDiagram and specify their names using the TemplateName property. Specify the name of the desired template as the event’s CreateItemFromTemplate/CreateConnectorFromTemplate method parameter.
