Description Trey Spiva 2008-02-01 19:20:26 UTC
Since most edges originate from the center of a node it would be really helpful to have the align with move to also suggest a center alignment.

Patch for visaul library AlignWith Support adding snap to center

This is a proposed patch to the org.netbeans.api.modules.visual.action.AlignWithSupport class, adding the ability to snap when two widgets are centrally aligned (either vertically or horizontally), see my NetBeans Visual Database Designer plugin for demonstration of result.

Richard, you probably attached wrong file. At least I can only open the attachment as PDF file with some workflow analysis. Can you please clarify what you meant by that? Thanks!

proper diff file

Replaces the previous patch file (which was completely wrong file, my mistake).  Should provide vertical and horizontal snapping to middle.

Thanks Richard!

Tondo, can you please review this patch for org.netbeans.api.modules.visual.action.AlignWithSupport class yourself or reassign it to someone? Thanks!

Edited patch

Thank you very much for your idea and your patch.

I have edited the patch slightly. The guide is now shown in the middle of the widgets - I think it is more intuitive.
What do you think?
Comment 7 Jaroslav Havlin 2012-02-02 15:15:41 UTC

Patch applied.
Thank you, Richard.
