Refactoring of Geometry API

Geometry API was refactored to guarantee consistency between integer-precision and double-precision version of Point/PrecisionPoint, Dimension/PrecisionDimension, and Rectangle/PrecisionRectangle. Synchronization between the still exposed integer-precision fields (x, y, width, height) and the no-longer exposed double-precision fields (preciseX, preciseY, preciseWidth, preciseHeight) is performed automatically by precision classes now, so clients may use the precision versions transparently, being no longer forced to perform a manual update of the respective fields. See 124904, 142628, and 271235 for details.

MarqueeSelectionTool

MarqueeSelectionTool was enhanced to now offer the following default marquee behaviors:

  • BEHAVIOR_CONNECTIONS_TOUCHED (supported since 3.1)
  • BEHAVIOR_CONNECTIONS_CONTAINED
  • BEHAVIOR_NODES_TOUCHED
  • BEHAVIOR_NODES_CONTAINED (supported since 3.1, default behavior)
  • BEHAVIOR_NODES_TOUCHED_AND_RELATED_CONNECTIONS
  • BEHAVIOR_NODES_CONTAINED_AND_RELATED_CONNECTIONS (supported since 3.1, formerly known as BEHAVIOR_NODES_AND_CONNECTIONS, which was in turn deprecated).

It was furthermore refactored to allow clients to customize marquee selection behavior via subclassing and overwriting one or more of the following methods:

  • performMarqueeSelect()
  • calculateMarqueeSelectedEditParts()
  • isMarqueeSelectable(EditPart)

The following methods are now also exposed (protected visibility) so clients can use access the current tool mode and the selection rectangle in their customization code:

  • getCurrentMarqueeSelectionRectangle()
  • getCurrentSelectionMode()

See 67991 for details.

MatchSizeAction

Similar to MatchWidthAction and MatchHeightAction, a concrete MatchSizeAction MatchSizeAction.png was now made available (see 107916).
