Get isSelected value


This is parts of link template.

i want to get link’s isSelected value in binding function…

because i’m implemente WPF multi binding.

There are no multibindings in GoJS. You’ll have to make do with multiple Bindings, or with a less efficient general binding. The important point is that there is a second argument to the binding conversion function, which gives you a reference to the GraphObject whose property is data bound.

It isn’t clear to me what you want to do, so I’ll make something up. Please examine this code and try it out. The visibility of the second TextBlock is dependent on either the Node being selected or on the property being true. Click on the “Test” button to toggle the value of that property, which you can see reflected in the Model.toJson result.
