yWorks, a provider of diagramming components for .NET, Java, and Adobe Flex applications, released yFiles for Silverlight, a diagramming library for the Microsoft Silverlight 3 framework. The library contains algorithms for client-side automatic diagram layout and graph analysis, as well as a viewer component for visualizing and editing diagrams.
Key features of yFiles for Silverlight include:
· Auto-layout functionality that covers a multitude of diagram types—UML diagrams, flowcharts, business process diagrams, organization charts, family trees, biological pathways, social networks, and more.
· Flexibility: You can customize any aspect of the diagramming components, including the appearance and behavior of all diagram elements and user interaction of the diagram control.
· Fast-performing components that can handle large diagrams with thousands of elements.
· Graph and network analysis, including algorithms such as shortest path detection and connectivity analysis that help analyze the network structure of a diagram.
yWorks offers a Graph Editor Demo application, at www.yworks.com/products/yfilessilverlight, that lets you add new nodes and edges to a graph, move or delete nodes, change node labels, apply a layout algorithm, download the current graph, and perform other actions that help you get a feel for using yFiles for Silverlight.
Pricing for yFiles for Silverlight starts at $4,900, and a 30-day evaluation version is available at www.yworks.com.
