Selection rubber bands – Preview 1.2.0

A small but useful update in ANTETYPE 1.2.0 is the introduction of a selection rubber band that can be used to identify other cells that are to be used a targets when setting up interactions or data binding. The existing selector button can still be used when the target for selection is not visible (on another screen or hidden by other elements).

From the Interaction inspector you will see a circle next to selection button, initiate a drag from this circle and a rubber band line will follow your pointer to the target cell of your choice. Each potential target will be highlighted and the name of the cell will be shown in a tooltip.


When a selection has been made the circle will change to have a x mark inside and the name of the cell will be displayed in the selection button.


Clicking on the x in the circle will remove the cell from the selector.

The same selection method also works when using property binding.
