Currently we are unable to set the containingGroup property of a link. Will this be possible in the future? We have a need to allow users to create unconnected links (with respect to nodes) and allow those links to be part of a group.
Such functionality is not planned. At the current time the Link.containingGroup property is automatically computed based on the Node(s) it is connected to.
In GoDiagram it was possible to set this property (but names have changed over the years). However it was prone to error when programmers had to maintain it as relationships changed.
Is this still the case in 2022? Thanks!
Yes it still is.
