The lowdown: I'm creating a conference room diagram program for a software engineering class. The user will click on a button, the image of an item (table, chair, what have you) will be generated within a panel, and the user will be able to select, move and rotate an object.
What I don't know how to do: Create a selectable object that can be moved and rotated within a panel via MOUSE click. (I'd like to mimic the funtionality in Microsoft powerpoint as closely as possible)
I can draw these images just fine, and even rotate them, but it's all done programmatically and by myself in development. I'm not sure how to extend this same ability to the user.
Any suggestions? Is this sort of functionality that's built in, or is this going to take extensive coding?
