Is it possible to draw a rectangle as I am selecting nodes on a diagram?
That’s the default behavior…
The rectangle is not visible, is that something out the box? My users want to be able to see that rectangle as it is draw?
Try our samples…
Have you changed any tools in your app?
I haven’t changed anything and I even tried the samples online. But as I left click and drag I don’t see a rectangle getting bigger as I drag around the objects on the goview. The objects are selected when I release the left click but the rectangle does not display during the drag event.
OH! You’re talking about webforms. Sorry, I shouldn’t do it, but I am always thinking winforms unless someone says otherwise.
No, our webforms product doesn’t currently give feedback while doing drag box selection. This is probably something we should revisit, as advances like HTML5 standardization make this kind of thing more possible these days.
If you were new to GoDiagram, I’d recommend you take a look at our Silverlight based GoXam, but looking at your order history, it looks like you are a ways down the road on this project.
I have actually been tasked to review Silverlight and GoXam for our project so its on the list of things to do.
You can look at GoWeb.js, it is the script we write to create the client side interactions (like tooltips) that you do get, and it where mouse actions are handled.
If it were easy though, we would have already done it.
