Hi guys!

Firstly, thanks for Zest. It is a really cool framework!!!

I am displaying my model instance graphically with Zest. My model instance
is updated from time to time by a server. If a receive an update from the
server, my event listener sets the properties on the model instance and
refreshes the GrapViewer to show up the new "nodes" and "connections".
This thing works quite good, but I have one problem with it: Every time I
refresh this viewer, the animation starts where the nodes get layouted.
This is quit beautiful to watch, but it gets annonying when the viewer
gets refreshed between short intervals.

Is there any switch to turn this animation feature off?! Or is the
position of the nodes calculated during this proccess?!?

Thanks,
Matthias

Thanks for the kind words.

Can you open a bug report / feature request for this (bugs.eclipse.org
under GEF / Zest). It should be an easy fix.

thanks,
ian

any updates on this one? it's a very annoying feature and 4 years have gone by. One would think it's a easy thing to remove?
