I'm trying to model a Diagram Editor and wanted to know if there's a way (through settings, programmatically or otherwise), to display the anchors on Nodes and Edges, like the one shown in the attachment?

Would be nice if I could get some links on how to do it, if it is possible.


PS: I already went through old threads about Anchors but couldn't find much, based on Sirius 5.

Edit 1: This is the link I was referring to, from Sirius 3:

However, I couldn't find a way to show the anchor points. Is it even possible to do this?

Hi Malika,

IMO, it is not currently possible to display the Anchor : they are use to locate/compute the connection ends but then the drawing begins on the border of the connected figures.

Would you like to see them because you try to position them as indicated by Cedric in his blog post ? or Do you need to have specific not on which your user can attach connections (in this case I suggest you to try the creation of sub nodes or border nodes used as ports)
