Cannot remove nodes because of InEdges with name "helper"


We do have problems with removing nodes on the ejDiagram.
This happens when a user first tried to draw new edges to a node but the connecting is prevented in the "connectionChange"-event (by args.cancel = true, e.g. to avoid connecting to a specific port).
This causes the generation of many "InEdges" with the name "helper" that are not cleaned-up.
Those helper-edges generate an error when the node is removed.

How could this be avoided and still use the possibility to cancel specific connectors being connected on the "connectionChange"-event?
An example to reproduce the error is given here: http://jsplayground.syncfusion.com/fvcffhbc

Best regards,

Hi Tycho,

Please use connectorSourceChange and connectorTargetChange event to achieve your requirement. please refer to the code example below.


      //define connectorTargetChange event

        connectorTargetChange: connectionchange,

         //define connectorSourceChange event

        connectorSourceChange: connectionchange,


       function connectionchange(args) {

                    if (args.node || args.port)

                        args.cancel = true;
