Hello all,
i want to add a connection from a class to itself, but the FreeFormConnection is really straight. I want to make it so flexible that it looks like the character U.

Should i add bend point to the connection ?
if yes, how to do that ? like this ?
getFeatureProvider().addIfPossible(AddBendPointContext());


or should i use a curved connection ?

Any hint is welcome
Many thanks
Junior

Junior,

both ways are possible. CurvedConnections are fixed in the way the U will
look like, FreeFormConnections offer more options to influence e.g. how
large the U will be. You can simply add bendpoints when you create the
FreeFormConnection, there's no need to delegate to an add bendpoint feature
and context. Just keep in mind that with FreeFormConnections user may also
change the U once it appears in the UI. This might of course be disabled by
disabling move, add and delete bendpoint features.
