Nevron Diagram for .NET Features

Diagram Document Object Model

Regardless of whether you are creating a WinForm or an ASP.NET diagramming application, with Nevron Diagram for .NET you use the same API to create your diagram documents.
The set of objects you can use to construct a document is called document object model (DOM). The DOM of Nevron Diagram for .NET is very consistent and designed to be further extended.

It all starts from the type of document you want to construct. In the diagram you basically have two types of documents:
  • Drawing Document - represents a diagram drawing. A drawing basically consists of shapes, residing in layers. Shapes can be linked to form complex graph relationships. Drawings can be automatically laid-out, visually edited and exported to various raster and vector formats (for example: BMP, PNG, SVG to name a few). Drawings can be printed.

  • Library Document - represents a collection of reusable drawing clippings (masters), which you can drag and drop in the drawing document. Masters can contain one or more shapes and the connections between them.
Both types of documents are constructed from a consistent set of elements, the most notable ones being shapes. Documents are displayed inside different views in the context of WinForm and ASP.NET environments.

Customer Quotes:

QUOTE We use Nevron Diagram for .NET in our client server software that allows Enel’s operational compartments to plan the electrical net; the software enable electrical engineers to find less expensive, but still efficient, solutions for the electrical net. The software works in disconnected mode, as a smart client, and allows the personnel to simulate various configuration of the electrical net; using the client program it is possible to add, remove or substitute pieces of the MT electrical net representation as well as change connection points.

The simulator, then, allows to emulate every single point of failure of the net and for each of them reconfigures the net for the best off-line time (breakers take several maneuvers and counter-maneuvers to operate correctly). At the end of the simulation an animation is recorded for the best solution found (time/price). The animation is then displayed , using Nevron Graph controls, allowing the electrical engineer to check the correctness of the result and the various “moves” that the simulator toke to get to the best solution. When the personnel is then satisfied with the solution it uses the client application to update the remote DB with a request to acquire the needed resources to build this new configuration on the real net.
