    I have a GeDialogue, it contains a GeUserArea , what I want is to create a typically infinite area similar to xpresso.

    I thought about drawing the background with DrawRectangle() using quite large numbers, but is this the correct approach? or I'm doing it wrong!!

    another question: can I draw a user area inside another user area?? "like nodes, a node can be a group which contains another nodes"

    and what about ScrollArea()? I tried using it, but it gives me errors in debug console "DrawBegin/End ist faul B" and hangs Cinema 4D

    The GeUserArea must be a finite size.  The 'infinite' part is in using a virtual window into your display space that is represented by the GeUserArea to draw into.  Store your virtual space window offsets (x, y) and draw accordingly with GeUserArea::Draw().

    You can't add a GeUserArea to a GeUserArea.  I draw nodes into it as separate entities.  So, I have a routine that knows how to draw a node and another that knows how to draw connections between nodes and so on.  With the bounding coordinates known, you can clip out nodes that aren't in the view and use SetClippingRegion() for anything partially drawn.

    For an infinite virtual space window set up, I would not use ScrollArea().  Handle mouse grabs (like in Google Maps or something), update your window x,y (typically upper left) by the mouseX, mouseY deltas, redraw.

    I see Tongue , thanks a lot Robert.

    but here rises another 2 questions that are related:
    1- if I use quite large GeUserArea Rectangle "for example (-10000000,-10000000. 10000000. 10000000) " is this possible?  (this will be the world, and the window will be a tiny drawing region of 1000 x 1000 size)

    2- I want to do the behavior of re scaling , when you have an xpresso node, and mouse hovers the borders, it changes cursor and you can drag it to scale the node, how to do something similar? "in other words which functions to check, so if there is something automatic like a border function for them, or I will have to store all drawings """ nodes """ borders and check for mouse position against them "" will be a bad approach "" "

    1. The GeUserArea rectangle is your window.  Your world is virtual and the GUA rectangle shows the portion given by your window offsets and GUA dimensions.  Typically, you would initialize this so that your world (0,0) are at the top, left of the GUA rectangle.

    2. When did you think you wouldn't have to store the position and dimensions of every existing node in the virtual world (in the node, of course)?  And then search them.  This is exactly what I did in the development phase.  There are many ways to increase search speed such as using sorting, hash tables, or binary space partitioning (divide and conquer).

    // iSUserArea.IsOverNode
    //*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*
    ShaderNode* iSUserArea::IsOverNode(LONG* pX, LONG* pY, const LONG& mx, const LONG& my)
    //*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*
    {
    	LONG h;
    	// Is mouse over ShaderNode? (Z-order search)
    	for (ShaderNode* snode = controller->GetLastSNode(); snode; snode = (ShaderNode* )snode->GetPrev())
    	{
    		h =			GetSNodeHeight(snode->GetType(), snode->GetExpanded(), snode->GetShowPreview());
    		snode->GetPos(pX, pY);
    		(*pX) -=	windowX;
    		(*pY) -=	windowY;
    		if ((mx >= *pX) && (mx < (*pX+cellWidth)) && (my >= *pY) && (my < (*pY+h))) return snode;
    	}
    	return NULL;
    }
    

    After you determine if you are over a node and which one, then you can refine where in the node to define locational functionality.

    *Note: my nodes here are all a fixed width with varying height by node type.

    thanks Robert 🙂, I know that I have to store all node data in the node class "like node size, position, inputs and outputs connections, etc.." , one last question that I didn't find an answer in the documentation:

    DrawMsg(Int32 x1, Int32 y1, Int32 x2, Int32 y2, const BaseContainer& msg);

    what are the values of x1,y1, x2,y2? is the the "window" of the world?

    I wouldn't worry about them.  I use them to set clipping and clear before drawing and that is it:

    // GeUserArea.Draw
    //*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*
    void iSUserArea::DrawMsg(LONG x1, LONG y1, LONG x2, LONG y2, const BaseContainer& msg)
    //*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*
    {
    	// No flicker
    	OffScreenOn();
    	SetClippingRegion(x1,y1,x2,y2);
    	// Clear area
    	DrawSetPen(isUAColor[ISCOLOR_BG]);
    	DrawRectangle(x1,y1,x2,y2);
            ...
    

    What is more important is that you maintain your window offset in your GUA-derived class.  As noted, I initialize my windowX and windowY to (0,0) and then update them with LMB-down scrolls (I'm doing rectangular selection at the end, but it is easily modified for scrolling behavior) :

    What are these "Nodes" in your code. And where do the come from?

    I've used the UA to draw shapes and move them around.
    But how to you create these "nodes" that you can connect together in the UA?

    I'm not having any luck with trying to put an xpresso window in a GeDialog. I can only launch a new one.
    So I'm thinking that maybe I need to do what you guys are doing to creating my own "nodes" in my own UA. Instead of trying to use the existing xpresso window?
    But I don't know how to create these "Nodes".

    Sorry for the newbish question.

    Scott, indeed, these nodes are classes I wrote.  The base class establishes a doubly-linked list set up (for easy insertion/deletion of nodes), position and size of the node graphically, inputs and outputs as NodeInput classes for connectivity, node ids, flags, methods, and other information.  The code is rather old and I would probably do it differently today having learned much over time.

    Thanks a lot Robert.
    I'll try to make sense of that. But it's lot of code to sift through.

    That's not your fault though. I know that link lists always requires a ton of code. Which is one reason why I was hoping I could use the existing xpresso node system and just add my own custom nodes to it. Instead of writing the entire thing by hand.
    But I'm running into a lot of things I can't figure out.
