Class Transaction

GoJS® Diagramming Components
version 3.0.0
by Northwoods Software®

A Transaction holds a list of ChangedEvents collected during a transaction, as the value of the read-only changes property.

Start a transaction by calling UndoManager.startTransaction (or Model.startTransaction or Diagram.startTransaction, which call that method). Be sure to finish a transaction with a matching call to UndoManager.commitTransaction (or Model.commitTransaction or Diagram.commitTransaction), or a call to UndoManager.rollbackTransaction (or the same named methods on Model or Diagram).

If you are performing multiple or repeated changes to a model or diagram, surround all of the code with calls to start and commit the transaction -- do not perform repeated calls to start-commit-start-commit. Typically each change caused by the user, such as a button click or a change of focus or a mouse drag, should perform one transaction in which all changes are made. All of the predefined commands and tools perform transactions.

Undoing or redoing a transaction is done by calling UndoManager.undo or UndoManager.redo. Those methods call the undo or redo methods here.

The UndoManager holds a list of Transactions in its UndoManager.history.
