the problem is the following:

Our old EntitiyBaseDraggable used the collider of the entity to determine if building was allowed of not. Because of this you could use the “fixture.onBeginContact” and “fixture.onEndContact” signals of the collider. But we were overriding some possible property bindings of the original collider internally, so this was no sufficient solution in some cases.

The new EntityBaseDraggable copies the collider of the entity internally, modifies it without touching the property bindings of the original collider, and uses the copy for collision detection instead. That’s why you are not recieving the signals.

I have a different solution for you, let me know if this is sufficient for you:

import QtQuick 1.1
import VPlay 1.0
import Box2D 1.0

EntityBaseDraggable {
  id: box
  entityType: "box"

  colliderComponent: boxCollider
  selectionMouseArea.anchors.fill: rect
  gridSize: 1
  height: 20
  width: 20
  dragOffset: Qt.point(0,0)
  //allowedToBuild: true

  property alias sWidth: rect.width
  property alias sHeight: rect.height
  //property bool isPlaced: false

  //showRectangleWhenBuildingNotAllowed: false
  preventFromRemovalFromEntityManager: false

  // you can access the properties of the rectangle that is shown when building is not allowed
  notAllowedRectangle.x: 0
  notAllowedRectangle.y: 0
  notAllowedRectangle.opacity: 1

  Rectangle {
    id: rect
    width: 30
    height: 30
    color: "yellow"

  BoxCollider {
    id: boxCollider

    friction: 1.6
    restitution: 0

//    fixture.onBeginContact: {
//      if(!isPlaced) {
//        rect.color = "red";
//        allowedToBuild = false;
//      }
//    }

//    fixture.onEndContact:  {
//      rect.color = "yellow"
//      allowedToBuild = true
//    }
