(I'm working with the Javascript version)

I am implementing grouping and folding in my software. Once more, mxGraph does most of the work for me :)

My cell is as well a "group" : it contains children cells. When expanded (not folded), the children cells are shown on the "main" graph. I would like to have the equivalent in css of "overflow:hidden" when my group cell is expanded (and resizable) : it shows only the children cells in the area of the parent cell, and not outside.

How would you handle that ?

I am trying to "intercept" the creation / rendering of the children cells in a group? Is there a way to render the "child graph" differently? Setting its bounds to the size of the parent cell.

(I am happy that the children cell are hidden when the cell is folded)

Thanks for your idea and help.
