Diagram Ribbon Overview

RadDiagramToolBox

To add a RadDiagramToolbox to the RadDiagramRibbon control, you can bind the ToolBox property to a RadDiagramToolBox using an ElementName binding.

Example 1: Add RadDiagramToolbox to DiagramRibbon

<Grid> 
    <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
        <RowDefinition Height=""/> 
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
    </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
        <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/> 
        <ColumnDefinition Width=""/> 
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
    <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon Grid.ColumnSpan="2" Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}" Toolbox="{Binding ElementName=toolBox}"/> 
    <telerik:RadDiagram x:Name="diagram" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1"> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramShape Content="Shape 1"/> 
    </telerik:RadDiagram> 
    <telerik:RadDiagramToolbox x:Name="toolBox" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" ItemsSource="{Binding GalleryItems}" />       
</Grid> 

DiagramNavigationPane

To add a RadDiagramNavigationPane to the RadDiagramRibbon control, you can bind the NavigationPane property to a RadDiagramNavigationPane using an ElementName binding.

Example 2: Add RadDiagramNavigationPane to DiagramRibbon

<Grid> 
    <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
        <RowDefinition Height=""/> 
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
    </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
        <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/> 
        <ColumnDefinition Width=""/> 
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
    <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon Grid.ColumnSpan="2"  
                              Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}"  
                              NavigationPane="{Binding ElementName=navigationPane}"/> 
    <telerik:RadDiagram x:Name="diagram" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1"> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramShape Content="Shape 1"/> 
    </telerik:RadDiagram> 
    <telerik:RadDiagramNavigationPane Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" x:Name="navigationPane" Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" />     
</Grid> 

RadDiagramRuler

To add a RadDiagramRuler to the DiagramRibbon the VerticalRuler and HorizontalRuler properties can be bound to RadDiagramRuler instances using an ElementName binding.

Example 3: Add RadDiagramRuler to DiagramRibbon

    <Grid> 
        <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
            <RowDefinition Height=""/> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
        </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/> 
            <ColumnDefinition Width=""/> 
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon Grid.Column="1" 
                                  Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}"     
                                  VerticalRuler="{Binding ElementName=verticalRuler}" 
                                  HorizontalRuler="{Binding ElementName=horizontalRuler}"/> 
        <telerik:RadDiagram x:Name="diagram" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1"> 
            <telerik:RadDiagramShape Content="Shape 1"/> 
        </telerik:RadDiagram> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramRuler x:Name="verticalRuler" Placement="Left" Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0"/> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramRuler x:Name="horizontalRuler" Placement="Bottom" Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2" Grid.RowSpan="2"/> 
    </Grid> 

QuickAccessToolBar

To add QuickAccessToolBar to the DiagramRibbon you can bind the QuickAccessToolBar property a QuickAccessToolBar instance using an ElementName binding.

Example 4: Add QuickAccessToolBar to DiagramRibbon

    <Grid> 
        <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
            <RowDefinition Height=""/> 
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
        </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/> 
            <ColumnDefinition Width=""/> 
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon Grid.Column="1" 
                                  Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}"   
                                  QuickAccessToolBarPosition="BelowRibbon"> 
            <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon.QuickAccessToolBar> 
                <telerik:QuickAccessToolBar/> 
            </telerik:RadDiagramRibbon.QuickAccessToolBar> 
        </telerik:RadDiagramRibbon> 
        <telerik:RadDiagram x:Name="diagram" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1"> 
            <telerik:RadDiagramShape Content="Shape 1"/> 
        </telerik:RadDiagram>     
    </Grid> 

RadRibbonBackstage

To add a Backstage to the DiagramRibbon you can use the Backstage property and declare a RadRibbonBackstage element.

Example 5: Add Backstage to DiagramRibbon

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot"> 
    <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
        <RowDefinition Height="*"/> 
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/> 
    </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
    <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon Diagram="{Binding ElementName=diagram}"    
                              BackstageClippingElement="{Binding ElementName=LayoutRoot}"> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramRibbon.Backstage> 
            <telerik:RadRibbonBackstage> 
                <telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem Header="Samples" IsDefault="true"> 
                    <ListBox x:Name="SamplesList" BorderThickness="0" HorizontalAlignment="Center"/> 
                </telerik:RadRibbonBackstageItem> 
            </telerik:RadRibbonBackstage> 
        </telerik:RadDiagramRibbon.Backstage> 
    </telerik:RadDiagramRibbon> 
    <telerik:RadDiagram x:Name="diagram" Grid.Row="1"> 
        <telerik:RadDiagramShape Content="Shape 1"/> 
    </telerik:RadDiagram>     
</Grid>
