Special Case : Connects

  • Connects have no visual aspects, even if they are PathNodes.
  • Connects are still moved (x/y) when their connected elements move.
  • Obviously, the connected elements move together.
  • Path traversal algorithms must stop when reaching connects (ReachablePathFinder, DeletionPathFinder, ConnectionSplineFinder)
  • The Auto Layout must special case its treatment of Connects because the connected nodes actually only take up one graphical space.
  • A decision has been taken to disallow binding of Connects to the containing ComponentRef. Not doing so has no known implications.
