This demo shows the Diagram widget's capability to wrap shapes into containers. A container is a special shape with the following features:

  • a container can contain other shapes (including other containers),
  • a container is dragged with its content,
  • a container can be collapsed with a collapse button.

To wrap a shape, just drop it into a container.

$(function() { var diagram = $("#diagram").dxDiagram({ toolbox: { groups: [ "general", { category: "containers", title: "Containers", expanded: true }] } }).dxDiagram("instance"); $.ajax({ url: "../../../../data/diagram-structure.json", dataType: "text", success: function(data) { diagram.import(data); } }); });
