Question

How to Implement an information box on an IlvManagerView?

Answer

It is possible to implement a fixed information box on an IlvManagerView that would always keep the same size and position on the manager view, not affected by the manager view transformer.

The idea is to draw directly the information box in the IlvManagerView component just after its content has been displayed, rather than using an object in the IlvManager . (An initial implementation of the less recommendable workaround is to use a JPanel within an IlvComponentView, and transform this object to keep the desired bounds in the manager view, but it is better to subclass IlvManagerView to do the drawing and not use manager objects).
