Long time user of GoDiagram for Windows. I think we picked it up in 2006. We recently rewrote our product in WPF, moving away from WinForms. We choose not to move to GoXam at the time because of level of effort. So we use GoDiagram as a WinForm control embedded in a WPF container.
Now we are looking at making improvements in the diagramming portion of the product. The biggest feature we would like to add is swim lanes. Currently functionality that we must be able to keep, is the ability to embed WinForm controls, specifically UI Type editors, inside of blocks.
There appear to be 3 options:
Stay with GoDiagram 6. By far the least amount of effort. How good is swim lane support? Will version 6 be end of lifed at some point?
Move to GoXam. Large effort, but I’m sure we could embed WinForm controls. Appears to have swim lane support. Is it as feature rich as GoDiagram 10?
Move to GoDiagram 10. Large effort but seems like it may have the most features or at least the most exhaustive sample library. Is it just a .Net wrapper around a Web browser? Could WinForm controls be embedded?
Any information around these questions is greatly appreciated.
