How to calculate the width of the node based on it's label

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejDiagram

Calculate Node width based on annotation bounds

The textChange event in the diagram will get invoked when changes happened in the label. Using this event, calculate the size of the node based on the changes in the label.

Please refer to the code example and sample link as follows.


function labelChanged(evt) { 
 if (!evt.element.segments) {
     var diagram = $("#diagram").ejDiagram("instance");
     var node = evt.element;
     var labelElement = document.getElementById(node.name+"_"+evt.label.name);
       var oldContent = labelElement.innerHTML;
       labelElement.innerHTML = evt.value;
       labelElement.parentNode.style.display = "block"
     var rect = labelElement.getBoundingClientRect();
       labelElement.innerHTML = oldContent;
       labelElement.parentNode.style.display = "none";
       diagram.updateNode(node.name, {width: rect.width});
     if(rect.height > node.height){
       diagram.updateNode(node.name, {height: rect.height});
            width: "100%",
            height: "600px",
            nodes: nodes,
            textChange: labelChanged,
