Class Robot

GoJS® Diagramming Components
version 3.0.5
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.

A class for simulating mouse and keyboard input.

As a special feature, this supports limited simulation of drag-and-drop between Diagrams, by setting both the sourceDiagram and targetDiagram properties on the eventprops argument of the mouseDown/mouseMove/mouseUp methods. Although go.InputEvent.targetDiagram is a real property, the sourceDiagram property is only used by these Robot methods.

Typical setup:

   // a shared Robot that can be used by all commands for this one Diagram
myRobot = new Robot(myDiagram); // defined in Robot.js

Then later:

   // Simulate a mouse drag to move a node:
const loc = ...; // some Point in document coordinates that is within the bounds of a node
const options = {}; // possible settings of InputEvent, such as setting control or shift to true
myRobot.mouseDown(loc.x, loc.y, 0, options);
myRobot.mouseMove(loc.x + 80, loc.y + 50, 50, options);
myRobot.mouseMove(loc.x + 20, loc.y + 100, 100, options);
myRobot.mouseUp(loc.x + 20, loc.y + 100, 150, options);
