Label positioning [message #205755] Wed, 17 September 2008 14:01 Go to next message

Hi all... i can't fix a problem with positioning a label beside the element
it "belongs" to. Here is the situation.
An element Node and a label displaying the "node name"; Node is displayed
by mean of a fixed-size ellipse figure; i'd like the label to be positioned
under the Node, centered, but i also want any connection from/to Node to be
"attached" to the ellipse figure boundary.
If i try to wrap an invisible rectangle around both the ellipse and the
label, connections would be attached to the rectangle boundary.
If i use an "external" label, that is a label figure that isn't a child of
the ellipse figure but is bound to it via mapping, the label can't be moved
freely around the ellipse but snaps to certain fixed positions; i can
accept that the label can be moved around, but in this case i'd like to be
able to move it freely.
Can anybody help me, please?

Hello Mojique,

See IAnchorableFigure. This interface should be implemented by one of the
figures containing "invisible rectangle", so you can modify appropriate methods
to return different ConnectionAnchor implementations. For example - SlidableOvalAnchor/EllipseAnchor..
