I need to create a dummy node on a link. I wrote code, that divides one link into two and creates a node between them, but I need a SELECTABLE and INVISIBLE dummy node. I founded on the forum some mentions about transparent dummy nodes, but don’t know ho to create them.
You may already have gotten past this point, but for other readers of this topic I’ll mention that the Processor sample application demonstrates one way to let users drop a node onto a link in order to split that link into two separate links, with two separate “remote connector” nodes. The purpose of that example code is to permit breaking a long link into two short parts with a common label identifying them – particularly when the link would cross page boundaries. But it sounds like your situation is different, since you want both links to connect to the same new node.
n.Brush = null; // change Shape's appearance
n.Pen = null;
n.Port.Style = GoPortStyle.None; // change Port's appearance
n.Location = new PointF(100, 100);
I’ve tried something like given code, but in this case I’ve got a link with a break. Now I made a successor class from GoBasicNode & overriden it’s Paint() method to get unbroken link. May be there is a more simple way to do it…
Well, I don’t know what you want, but I would guess that if you make the port really small, and have the links go to the port instead of to the shape, that would do what you want.
The fact is that I need this port. To make something like this:
OK, that’s fine.
Thank you for response
