GoJS® Diagramming Components
version 3.0.2
by Northwoods Software®

This is an extension and not part of the main GoJS library. Note that the API for this class may change at any time. If you intend to use an extension in production, you should copy the code to your own source directory. See the Extensions intro page for more information.


The NonRealtimeDraggingTool class lets the user drag an image instead of actually moving any selected nodes, until the mouse-up event.

If you want to experiment with this extension, try the Non Realtime Dragging sample.




  • Gets or sets how long the movement animation should be to move the actual parts upon a mouse-up. The default value is zero -- there is no animation of the movement.

    Returns void

  • When deactivated, make sure any image is removed from the Diagram and all references are cleared out.

    Returns void

  • If the user changes to "copying" mode by holding down the Control key, return to the regular behavior and remove the image.

    Returns void

  • If the user changes back to "moving" mode, show the image again and go back to dragging the ghost dragged parts.

    Returns void

  • Do the normal mouse-up behavior, but only after restoring draggedParts.
