<chMax> (Maximum Children)

This element is used to indicate when to enable and disable the user interface components associated with adding a new shape to a diagram. This element defines a max number of nodes a diagram can support through the user interface directly.

	<chMax val="5"/>             
	<dir val="norm"/>            
	<resizeHandles val="exact" />

In this example we define the user interface to only be enabled to insert five nodes. ]
