In my application, I am trying to create the following user flow:
- User drags out a node type
- Links are created that dangle off the node, indicating to the user what types of nodes can be linked to the newly created node
- User links up other existing nodes to dangling links.
To create this functionally, I catch the DiagramDrop event, and then add appropriate ports and links to the newly created node. However, the “from” portion of each of these new links is initially null until a user links up nodes (as in step 3). When the Diagram draws the links, it sets the from location to the (0, 0) by default, but I would like to place the from somewhere else on the diagram (i.e., underneath the newly created node). How would I accomplish this without creating a dummy node? I note that I can drag the link end with the mouse to desired spot, but I have not figured out how to do this programmatically. I can just set the Link.Route variable?
I apologize if this was already answered. I poked around for a bit but did not see a relevant question.
