Is there a way to deactivate the orthogonal tool by simply clicking on white space?

I love the orthogonal tool, but once I've finished connecting my shapes I have to go back to my toolbar and select the pointer which results in a diagram.deactivateTool().
What we'd like to be able to do is simply click anywhere in the white-space of the diagram and have the tool deactivate.

Is this possible?

Many thanks for any suggestions or code snippets.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion product.

We suggest you to use the overload method of activateTool which automatically deactivates the orthogonal tool once the connector is created. We have created the simple sample to demonstrate this and sample can be downloaded from the below link.

Here is the code snippet.

diagram.activateTool("orthogonalLine", true);

Here is the sample.


Please let me know if you have any quires.


Kameshwaran R.
