Userhandle in Angular Diagram component

  • User handles are used to add some frequently used commands around the selector. To create user handles, define and add them to the userHandles collection of the selectedItems property.
  • The name property of user handle is used to define the name of the user handle and its further used to find the user handle at runtime and do any customization.

Alignment

User handles can be aligned relative to the node boundaries. It has margin, offset, side, horizontalAlignment, and verticalAlignment settings. It is quite tricky when all four alignments are used together but gives more control over alignment.

Offset for user handle

The offset property of userHandles is used to align the user handle based on fractions. 0 represents top/left corner, 1 represents bottom/right corner, and 0.5 represents half of width/height.

Side

The side property of userHandles is used to align the user handle by using the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right options.

Horizontal and vertical alignments

The horizontalAlignment property of userHandles is used to set how the user handle is horizontally aligned at the position based on the offset. The verticalAlignment property is used to set how user handle is vertically aligned at the position.

Margin for user handle

Margin is an absolute value used to add some blank space in any one of its four sides. The userHandles can be displaced with the margin property.

Appearance

The appearance of the user handle can be customized by using the size, borderColor, backgroundColor, visible, pathData, and pathColor properties of the userHandles.

Fixed user handles

Fixed user handles are used to add some frequently used commands around the node and connector even without selecting it.

Initialization an fixed user handles

To create fixed user handles, define and add them to the collection of nodes and connectors property. The following code example used to create an fixed user handles for the nodes/connectors.

Customization

  • The id property of fixed user handle is used to define the unique identification of the fixed user handle and its further used to add custom events to the fixed user handle.
  • The fixed user handle can be positioned relative to the node and connector boundaries. It has offset, padding and cornerRadius settings. It is used to position and customize the fixed user handle.
  • The Padding is used to leave the space that’s inside the fixed user handle between the icon and the border.
  • Corner radius allows to create fixed user handles with rounded corners. The radius of the rounded corner is set with the cornerRadius property.

Note: PathData should need to be provided to render fixed user handle.

Size

Diagram allows you set size for fixed user handles by using the width and height property. The default value of the width and height property is 10.

Style

  • You can change the style of the fixed user handles with the specific properties of borderColor, borderWidth, and background color using handleStrokeColor, handleStrokeWidth, and fill properties and the icon borderColor and borderWidth using iconStrokeColor and iconStrokeWidth.
  • The fixed user handle’s iconStrokeColor and iconStrokeWidth property used to change the stroke color and stroke width of the given pathData.
  • The fixed user handle handleStrokeColor, fill properties are used to define the background color and border color of the userhandle and the handleStrokeWidth property is used to define the border width of the fixed user handle.
  • The visible property of the fixed user handle enables or disables the visibility of fixed user handle.

The following code explains how to customize the appearance of the fixed user handles.

Customizing node fixed user handle

  • The node fixed user handle can be aligned relative to the node boundaries. It has margin and offset settings. It is quite useful to position the node fixed userhandle and used together and gives you more control over the node fixed user handle positioning.

Margin for node fixed user handle

Margin is an absolute value used to add some blank space in any one of its four sides. The fixed user handle can be displaced with the margin property.

Offset for node fixed user handle

The offset property of fixed user handle is used to align the user handle based on x and y points. (0,0) represents top/left corner and (1,1) represents bottom/right corner.

The following table shows all the possible alignments visually shows the fixed user handle positions.

Offset Margin Output
(0,0) Right = 20 fixed user handle for node
(0.5,0) Bottom = 20 fixed user handle for node
(1,0) Left = 20 fixed user handle for node
(0,0.5) Right = 20 fixed user handle for node
(0,1) Left = 20 fixed user handle for node
(0,1) Right = 20 fixed user handle for node
(0.5,1) Top = 20 fixed user handle for node
(1,1) Left = 20 fixed user handle for node

The following code explains how to customize the node fixed user handle.

Customizing connector fixed user handle

  • The connector fixed user handle can be aligned relative to the connector boundaries. It has alignment, displacement and offset settings. It is useful to position the connector fixed userhandle and used together and gives you more control over the connector fixed user handle positioning.
  • The offset and alignment properties of fixed user handle allows you to align the connector fixed user handles with respect to the segments.

Offset for connector fixed user handle

The offset property of connector fixed user handle is used to align the user handle based on fractions. 0 represents the connector source point, 1 represents the connector target point, and 0.5 represents the center point of the connector segment.

Alignment

The connector’s fixed user handle can be aligned over its segment path using the alignment property of fixed user handle.

The following table shows all the possible alignments visually shows the fixed user handle positions.

Offset Alignment Output
0 Before fixed user handle for node
0.5 Center fixed user handle for node
1 After fixed user handle for node

Displacement

  • The displacement property allows you to specify the space to be left from the connector segment based on the x and y value provided.

The following table shows all the possible alignments visually shows the fixed user handle positions.

Displacment Alignment Output
x=10 Before fixed user handle for node
x=10 After fixed user handle for node
y=10 Before fixed user handle for node
y=10 After fixed user handle for node

Note: Displacement will not be done if the alignment is set to be center.

The following code explains how to customize the connector fixed user handle.
