Editing Restrictions

The Diagram widget allows you to restrict edit operations. To prohibit an operation, set the corresponding option in the editing property to false.

In this demo, the onRequestEditOperation function implements a complex logic to determine whether an operation is allowed. The updateUI event parameter indicates whether the event is raised by user actions or UI update. If a user tries to perform a prohibited action, an error message is displayed.
