Align

Alignment commands enable you to align the selected or defined objects such as nodes and connectors with respect to the selection boundary. Refer to align commands which shows how to use align methods in the diagram.

Parameters Description
Alignment Options

Defines the specific direction, with respect to which the objects to be aligned.
The accepted values of the argument “alignment options” are as follows.

Left Aligns all the selected objects at the left of the selection boundary.
Right Aligns all the selected objects at the right of the selection boundary.
Center Aligns all the selected objects at the center of the selection boundary.
Top Aligns all the selected objects at the top of the selection boundary.
Bottom Aligns all the selected objects at the bottom of the selection boundary.
Middle Aligns all the selected objects at the middle of the selection boundary.
Objects

Defines the objects to be aligned. This is an optional parameter. By default, all the nodes and connectors in the selected region of the diagram gets aligned.

Alignment Mode

Defines the specific mode, with respect to which the objects to be aligned. This is an optional parameter. The default alignment mode is Object.
The accepted values of the argument “alignment mode” are as follows.

Object Aligns the objects based on the first object in the selected list.
Selector Aligns the objects based on the selection boundary.

The following code example illustrates how to align all the selected objects at the left side of the selection boundary.

Distribute

The Distribute commands enable to place the selected objects on the page at equal intervals from each other. The selected objects are equally spaced within the selection boundary.

The factor to distribute the shapes DistributeOptions are listed as follows:

  • RightToLeft: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the right and left sides of the adjacent objects.
  • Left: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the left sides of the adjacent objects.
  • Right: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the right sides of the adjacent objects.
  • Center: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the center of the adjacent objects.
  • BottomToTop: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the bottom and top sides of the adjacent objects.
  • Top: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the top sides of the adjacent objects.
  • Bottom: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the bottom sides of the adjacent objects.
  • Middle: Distributes the objects based on the distance between the vertical center of the adjacent objects.

The following code example illustrates how to execute the space commands.

Nudge command

The nudge commands move the selected elements towards up, down, left, or right by 1 pixel.

NudgeDirection nudge command moves the selected elements towards the specified direction by 1 pixel, by default.

The accepted values of the argument “direction” are as follows:

  • Up: Moves the selected elements towards up by the specified delta value.
  • Down: Moves the selected elements towards down by the specified delta value.
  • Left: Moves the selected elements towards left by the specified delta value.
  • Right: Moves the selected elements towards right by the specified delta value.

The following code illustrates how to execute nudge command.

let bound: Rect = new Rect(200, 400, 500, 400);
diagram.bringToCenter(bound);

FitToPage command

The fitToPage command helps to fit the diagram content into the view with respect to either width, height, or at the whole.

The mode parameter defines whether the diagram has to be horizontally/vertically fit into the viewport with respect to width, height, or entire bounds of the diagram.

The region parameter defines the region that has to be drawn as an image.

The margin parameter defines the region/bounds of the diagram content that is to be fit into the view.

The canZoomIn parameter enables/disables zooming to fit the smaller content into a larger viewport.

The customBounds parameter the custom region that has to be fit into the viewport.

The following code illustrates how to execute FitToPage command.

Command manager

Diagram provides support to map/bind command execution with desired combination of key gestures. Diagram provides some built-in commands. CommandManager provides support to define custom commands. The custom commands are executed, when the specified key gesture is recognized.

Custom command

To define a custom command, specify the following properties:

  • execute: A method to be executed.
  • canExecute: A method to define whether the command can be executed at the moment.
  • gesture: A combination of keys and KeyModifiers.
  • parameter: Defines any additional parameters that are required at runtime.
  • name: Defines the name of the command.

To explore the properties of custom commands, refer to Commands.

The following code example illustrates how to define a custom command.

        diagram.copy();
        diagram.paste();
        diagram.dataBind();
    }

Modify the existing command

When any one of the default commands is not desired, they can be disabled. To change the functionality of a specific command, the command can be completely modified.

The following code example illustrates how to disable a command and how to modify the built-in commands.
