How to create a floating figure [message #483340] Tue, 01 September 2009 04:52 Go to next message

Hi All,

I want to make a figure which is placed - for example a button - in the
bottom left corner, and it should stay there if i scroll the viewer in any
direction.

I just don't know where to start, if anyone could give me some pointers or
direct me to some example. I use the example of the digraph which was
distributed through a eclipseCon presentation and is also available from
the eclipse CVS.

It uses a freeform layout (Graph) on which graph nodes are (GraphNode) are
drawn.

Any help is greatly appriciated :-)

Kind regards,

Jeroen

Hi,
I have the same problem. I have editor and I need one figure to be placed in the constatnt position within the editor area even during scrolling. Is there any nice and easy way to do this in GEF ?

Regards
Maciek

I've found out that there are functions to set editor's viewport size - so theoretically I can place the figure I don't want to scroll in the area outside the scrollable viewport rectangle. The question is where in the code should I set this size? Has anyone tried this solution in practice? Please help Smile
