3 Jan 20234 minutes to read

  • When a large diagram is loaded, only certain portion of the diagram is visible. The remaining portions are clipped. Clipped portions can be explored by scrolling the scrollbars or panning the diagram.
  • Diagram can be zoomed in or out by using Ctrl + mouse wheel.
  • When the diagram is zoomed or panned, the scrollChange event gets triggered.

Progress When the mouse is in motion the status is notified as progress.
Completed When panning is stopped the status is notified with completed.
