Pinned topic Child- Parent relationship

Suppose I have defined a couple of Graphical Objects called NE and port. How can I define a parent-child relationship between these two items such that I can add port to the NE and remove it easily?

    Hello,

    What will be the graphical representation of this relationship? Do you want the child to be contained in the bounds of the parent (like in a Canvas)? If yes, do you want the parent to enforce the layout of its children, or do you want the children to placed freely in the parent?

    Both of them. Some of the children must be placed at the boundary and some of them must be placed inside the first object. JTGO has this capability, as soon as you define a child-parent relationship it places the child in the parent.

    OK, to summarize, if I understand correctly, you want to define a custom UserSymbol that acts as a container, such that you can add children to it like a basic Canvas for example. Is that right? (If yes, I will post an article in the ILOG .NET blog to explain how to do this.)

    yes, this is exactly what I want to do. I also want to able to add and remove children to/from the parent. For example I want to define a "Card" object as the parent and "Port" as the child.  I will have a couple of buttons called "Add port" and "remove port", when I click on "Add port" I want a "port" object to be added to the "card". I'd like to be able to select the children seperately so I can click on the "remove port" and remove the objects.

    thanks
