Hi ,

I hope the following SDK sample will give you what you need:


It basically shows how you can sort the child shapes of a given shape in Tree Layout.

There was a post in 2015 (below) for the Layout method to allow control of tree down or tree up layout. Currently there seems to be no way to automatically layout a flow from top down or bottom up of connected elements on a diagram.

Sept. 2015

I have a problem with Layout in RadDiagram. While using this example after applying Layout() method to my diagram (Sample.jpg), arrangement of layers and connections between them became very strange. Examples of applying Tree-down and Tree-up layouts are in the files TreeDown.jpg and TreeUp.jpg respectively.

Is it possible to place layers applying Layout() method, according to their connection?  

Thank You!

currently the order of the child nodes is only according to the nodes add order, this order can't be change so the final displayed result can't be controlled! there should be some solution either arranging nodes in the MVVM nodes list or adjust some logic to the layout to control this.
