Display a Figure in front of the others [message #238499] Sat, 15 September 2007 10:21 Go to next message

I have a lot of Figure instances, they are overlapping and I would like to have the possibility to call something like myFigure.setToFront(), but there is nothing like that in the Figure API.. any idea or suggestion? (I've posted this in the SWT section but no one can help me, maybe there is something similar in GEF and I can dig into its implementation code)

the only way, so far, is to delete the Figure and recreate it, so that it will be placed on top of the others, but it's an horrible solution and it doesn't scale.

thanks

Hi Jappo,

In my you have to change the order of the childrens in your diagram. The
childfigures will displayed in the order they added to the child-list.
There a existing some other posts to this problem in this newsgroup.

cool, so It looks like I can dig into GMF code to see what they are doing.. I hope it's not too messy :D

thanks for your help
