Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Diagrams
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Sdk.Diagrams (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Sdk.Diagrams.dll)

public virtual double GridSize { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The size of the grid for the shape.

If the value is non-zero, after the user moves the shape, the shape’s position will be adjusted so that its X and Y values are multiples of the GridSize relative to the parent shape or diagram. The default value is 0.125.

Override this property to change the grid size for a particular type of shape and its children.

To change the grid size for a diagram and all of its contents, override DefaultGrideSize

If you do not want alignment for any shapes in your diagram, override the SnapToGrid property in your diagram class to return false.
