Not allow the removal of certain nodes

Hi, I am looking into how to forbid the user on deleting certain nodes from the diagram.

I've tried setting theargs.cancelproperty to true in the collectionChange event but the node keeps getting deleted from the diagram.

I don't know where I should place the condition in order to let the user know that she can't delete the tried node.

In collectionChange event, you should set args.cancel to true when the state “Changing” to prevent deleting of nodes. Refer to the below mentioned code example and sample.

Code Example:

function collectionChange(args) {

  if (

    args.state == 'Changing' &&

    args.type == 'Removal' &&

    args.element.id == 'support'

  ) {

    args.cancel = true;
