Layers

Aug 13, 2009 at 8:35 AM

Hello all,

As the developer of this project seems to of dropped off the face of the earth or won the lottery and is now in the caribean with some lovely's, has anyone used the layers feature in Open Diagram and if so can you pass me some hints on how to get these to render in the diagram control so that users can see them.

Cheers.

Scott.

Ok i have looked further into this and it seems that the layers are actually the entire size of the diagram and are none selectable or movable, which kinda makes sense, although it would of been nice if they were moveable.

So i will use tabs at the bottom of the designer to switch better layers :)

Thanks.

I actually did win the lottery but then I lost it all to a Nigerian 417 scam!

As you've already determined, layers work as they do in eg Photoshop - they are a z-ordered container for elements and are non-visual.

You may want to look at the Group class and the frmGroup  test form instead.
