setDesignMode alternative for NG client

Postby robrecht » Tue Jul 25, 2017 10:15 pm

Hi,

Currently I am using the setDesignMode method on controller to allow the user to move/resize/hide elements on a form.
After quitting design mode all element properties like position, visibility , ... are saved into a set of database tables.
This allows me to redraw a form with the solutionModel the next time the user want to see this saved "view"

I understand Servoy isn't going to support this feature in the NG client
With migration to the NG client ahead, is there an alternative to use in the NG client ?
I wouldn't need all the features like onDrag and onDrop but at least I would need some handlers to resize, and a click method to show extra properties related to an element (custom webcomponent in ng)

Thanks
Robrecht

On this page: https://wiki.servoy.com/display/public/ ... patibility

it says:

client design is not present (yet)
Client side Drag'n'Drop is not supported (yet)

Have they specifically said they won't be implementing design mode for NGClient?

I thought I heard that..
That "yet" thing is there for a couple of years on the documentation page already.

@Servoy Staff ?
