Pan when dragging shapes in Diagram

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Diagram
Created with Version 2017.3 1026

Description

I have a large diagram that I would like to pan the viewport when a user drags a shape onto/past a visible boundary. Do you have any ideas on how I might go about adding this feature to the diagram?

Solution

  1. Add a handler to the drag event
  2. Use the current pan and add the new point dependent on the direction in which the dragging is taking place

      drag: function (e) {                  
            var selection = this.boundingBox(e.shapes);
            var mTLPoint = new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point(selection.x, selection.y);
            var mBRPoint = new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point((selection.x + selection.width, (selection.y + selection.height));
            var vTLPoint = this.modelToView(mTLPoint);
            var vBRPoint = this.modelToView(mBRPoint);
            var vVPPoint = this.modelToView(new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point(this.viewport(.x, this.viewport().y));
            var vph = this.viewport().height;
            var vpw = this.viewport().width;
            var pan = this.pan();
    
            if (vTLPoint.y <= 0) {
                // Pan up
                this.pan(this.pan().plus(new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point(0,  vTLPoint.y)));
            }
    
            if (vBRPoint.y >= vph) {
                // Pan down
                this.pan(pan.plus(new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point(0, vBRPoint.y - vph)));
            }
    
            if (vTLPoint.x <= 0) {   
                // Pan left
                this.pan(this.pan().plus(new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point(vTLPoint.x, 0)));
            }
    
            if (vBRPoint.x >= vpw) {
                // Pan right
                this.pan(this.pan().plus(new kendo.dataviz.diagram.Point(vBRPoint.x - vpw, 0)));
            }
        }
