Class: Snap

ol.interaction.Snap


import Snap from 'ol/interaction/snap';

Handles snapping of vector features while modifying or drawing them. The features can come from a ol.source.Vector or ol.Collection Any interaction object that allows the user to interact with the features using the mouse can benefit from the snapping, as long as it is added before.

The snap interaction modifies map browser event coordinate and pixel properties to force the snap to occur to any interaction that them.

Example:

var snap = new ol.interaction.Snap({
  source: source
});

new ol.interaction.Snap(opt_options)
