I am having a issue of mixin not able to extend CustomNode since it can only extends other mixin or interface.

But i want to inherit CustomNode so that i can have draggable functionality. and int he future, i might want to inherit more functionality, that's why i need mixin for multiple inheritance.

anybody knows a solution to this?

thanks! n_n

It's not possible to include CustomNode (abstract class) into a Mixin.

Well, you can use the fact (?) that the concrete class will be a Node, and treats your mixin as a Node by applying dynamic type casting on the instance you work on...

Not very pretty, but sometimes it's the most elegant of the options you got...

I agree. Here's the link:
