Drawing Tools are actions that are temporarily linked to the GanttTable the act as modes only generally only one can be active at a given time.

Tools are used as an alernative to using CellEditors, they work by listening to the various events produced by the table and narrowing them down to the cell in question.

The tool will be able to request
  • All key Events
  • All Mouse Events
  • All Mouse Motion Events

Tools can take the form of:
  • Table Editing
  • Table Navigation

A Tool will take the focus of the diagram basically switching it into a specialist mode therefore E-GANTT will allow you to use one tool at a time.
