Palette reset on nodes not connections [message #176184] Fri, 08 April 2005 14:50 Go to next message

Once a node has been added to a GEF diagram, the palette automatically
resets itself to be the general selection tool. This is not the case for
connection tools. How would I go about changing the moding so that the
node tools behave the same way as connection tools (remain in the same
mode until the user chooses something different)?

Thanks.

If you're using the latest build or HEAD:
toolEntry.setToolProperty(AbstractTool.PROPERTY_UNLOAD_WHEN_ FINISHED,
Boolean.FALSE);

Otherwise, override createTool() and invoke
tool.setUnloadWhenFinished(false)
