AddFlow for .NET Script Publisher's description
AddFlow for .NET is a .NET Windows Forms Custom control.
AddFlow for .NET is a .NET Windows Forms Custom control. It provides approximately the same flowcharting/diagramming features as the ActiveX version and also some new features, more flexibility and a simpler and more powerful object model. It has been completely rewritten in C# to take advantage of the infrastructure provided by .NET. It is 100% Managed Code.
AddFlow for .NET is NOT compatible with the current ActiveX version. For instance, if you are porting an application from VB6, you will have to review almost all the code that uses AddFlow (however this is just a matter of a few hours).
If you need a strict compatibility, you can use the current ActiveX version (5.4) as a COM component in a .NET application. However we encourage you to use the .NET version which is far more powerful and easier to use.
AddFlow for .NET is still easier to use since its programmatic interface has been changed towards more simplicity.
And finally, there are also some new properties (Items collection, SelItems collection, AntiAliasing property, etc) and also all the inherited properties, methods and events.
There is a conversion guide in the tutorial provided with AddFlow.
The ActiveX version of AddFlow can be used as a COM component in a .NET application because COM objects are supported in .NET (however just as 16-bit programs are supported under 32-bit Windows!). Moreover AddFlow for .NET offers some concrete benefits:
- the possibility to derive the Node and the Link classes to obtain new objects that fit your needs
- anti-aliasing technology to obtain smoother diagrams
- custom shapes for nodes and arrows
- SVG support
System Requirements:No special requirements.
