Widget to draw a diagram on browser

0
Does anyone know the widget where you can draw a diagram such as drawing lines, placing text boxes and pasting pictures on Chrome browser, and can save it somehow?  Rich text editor cannot handle lines and shapes. Thanks, Jun

There are two marketplace modules you could look at:

Graph editor: https://marketplace.mendix.com/link/component/98525

Paintor: https://marketplace.mendix.com/link/component/110343

I believe there is no such widget readily available.

See the response to this idea (an old one but the response is probably still valid) https://forum.mendix.com/link/ideas/372

If you would decide to create a widget yourself, maybe looking at the following widget could give some inspiration on how to approach it: https://docs.mendix.com/appstore/widgets/signature

And maybe you can find a way offer your users a jump to Word or something equal to do the editing there and store the result in you Mendix app? Creating a widget with this kind of functionality can be tricky and expensive, depending on the requirements

I hope this helps.

Thank you very much for your quick reply. Understood that there seem no such widgets in platform and market place. While I am considering the workaround as you proposed involving external rich client tools like MS Office too, one of customer requirement is to show in on Mendix. I will continue to investigate other options including making new widget and talk to the customer which one they think is best (or even unacceptable).
