connections z-order and container EditParts [message #230095] Wed, 31 January 2007 15:44

I have a container EditPart_A which contains children of EditPart_B. I
have connections from EditPart_B to other figures in the diagram. I'm
having problems with the z-ordering of the connections. I want the
connections to be hidden behind the editPart_A if editPart_A overlaps the

I've succeeded in switching the ordering of the primary_layer and the
connection_layer by overriding createPrintableLayers, but this causes the
connection to terminate at the outer edge of the parent EditPart_A and not
show the connection terminating at the child EditPart_B.

It seems that EditPart_A needs to be on a different layer to its children;
but then I'm back to square one and the connection figures will always
appear above EditPart_A.

Is it possible to get the result I'm after?
