Placing child figure at fixed relative position [message #226063] Sun, 05 November 2006 11:31 Go to next message

Hi,

I wonder how I can place a child figure at a fixed position and
with a fixed size relative to the position and size of its parent
figure. Since I'm quite new to GEF/Draw2d, any help on this question-
which is not too hard, I suppose - would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Andreas

Hi Andreas,

I'd suggest you to take a look at the GEF layout manager classes - they
are in charge of laying out children figures for the parent figure. Also
you could take a look at layout managers in GMF open source project - they
are derived by extending GEF's layout managers.

Good starting points would be:
1) take a look at the Figure class see how layout manager is used
2) take a look at the LayoutManager interface and classes derived from it

Cheers,
Alex

The parent figure should return true for useLocalCoordinates(). The
CircuitFigure in the logic editor is an example of what you want to do.
