Hi,

I have an editpart containing multiple child editParts. I donot want child to be moveable but when user select child and try to move then parent should be moved(the whole figure should move). Currently parent move when i have my mouse pointing to parent itself but not incase of mouse pointing towards child.

Any idea?

Cheers,

Im not sure in-depth about this problem. But in general, wouldn't it be possible to move the parent relative to the children? Please provide some more detailed information or code.

There are 3 figures. First the canvas figure which can have multiple child figures. The layout for outer most figure is XYLayout. Now this canvas figure contains multiple child figures of ToolbarLayout. The toolbar layout figure contains multiple figures of FlowLayout.

Now when i move figures with ToolBar layout then it works fine(as its parent have XY layout). But if user drags 3 figure(Flowlayout) then i want to move figure 2(with tool bar layout) completely with all its children (move the parent so all children will be moved).

Any idea?

What about EditPart.getTargetEditPart(Request request) method? Try to override it in those 3 figures and redirect it to the parent.
