Deleting node from model

Hi Walter,

To create a new node i have used below code
vm.myDiagram.startTransaction(“add node and link”);
vm.myDiagram.model.addNodeData({ key: vm.myDiagram.model.nodeDataArray[0].key+vm.i , name:vm.draggedNodeName , color: “#F0F0F0” , location: “100 -50”}); // this makes sure the key is unique
vm.myDiagram.model.addLinkData({ from: vm.myDiagram.model.nodeDataArray[0].key, to: vm.myDiagram.model.nodeDataArray[0].key+vm.i });
vm.myDiagram.commitTransaction(“add node and link”);

which works fine now i need to delete node i have written like below but it did;nt work

vm.myDiagram.startTransaction(“remove node data”);
vm.myDiagram.model.removeNodeData({ key: vm.myDiagram.model.nodeDataArray[index+1].key , name:reportname , color: “#F0F0F0” , location: “100 -50”}); // this makes sure the key is unique
vm.myDiagram.commitTransaction(“remove node data”);

Please help

Models use equality by reference, so you are asking to remove a new node data object, which cannot already exist in the model. Call Diagram.findNodesByExample if you really want to do that.

But in this case you don’t.

var node = myDiagram.findNodeForKey(...key...);
if (node !== null) {
  myDiagram.commitTransaction("deleted node");

thanks walter.

These seem to be different topics that each deserve their own forum topic. It would also help a lot if you provided screenshots or sketches for each.

  1. For selection, please read GoJS Selection -- Northwoods Software.
    For hover, I don’t know what you are seeing.

  2. For context menus, please read GoJS Context Menus -- Northwoods Software and GoJS HTML Interaction -- Northwoods Software

  3. Could you provide more details for what you have done? What properties have you set on your Links?
