Class mxConnectionHandler

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.awt.event.MouseListener, java.awt.event.MouseMotionListener, java.util.EventListener

    public class mxConnectionHandler
    extends mxMouseAdapter
    Connection handler creates new connections between cells. This control is used to display the connector icon, while the preview is used to draw the line. mxEvent.CONNECT fires between begin- and endUpdate in mouseReleased. The cell property contains the inserted edge, the event and target properties contain the respective arguments that were passed to mouseReleased.

      • eventSource

        protected mxEventSource eventSource
        Holds the event source.
      • connectIcon

        protected javax.swing.ImageIcon connectIcon
