Change colors dinamically to show different states

Aug 2, 2012 at 3:34 PM


i'm considering show a diagram with custom shapes or standard and in function of some conditions i would like change the fill color of one of them, to create a blink effect, dinamically .... i tried something like this:

            foreach (Shape sh in display1.Diagram.Shapes)
                if (sh.Type.ToString() != "GeneralShapes.Text" && sh.Type.ToString() != "GeneralShapes.Polyline")
                    Circle circ = (Circle)sh;
                    MessageBox.Show(circ.Text );

but i've not access to change the shape's color, no possible also casting to circle .....


Am i following the right way ?

Thank's in advance!

You cannot access the color of the shapes directly, this is done by setting an other FillStye:

foreach (Shape sh in display1.Diagram.Shapes)
    if (sh is Dataweb.NShape.Advanced.TextBase || sh is Dataweb.NShape.ILinearShape) 
    Circle circ = (Circle)sh; 
    circ.FillStyle = project1.Design.FillStyles["Red"];
