Layout Features Tutorial
This demo shows common configuration options for the (polyline)
Basic distance settings like the
minimum node-edge distance
minimum edge-edge distance
routed by the algorithm, they are so-called
edges. All other edges are routed, thus, called
: the default style in this example is orthogonal, but the
are routed using the octilinear style.
Grouping of edges: the
are grouped at their target side.
Restricting ports via
: at node '5' and node '7', ports are restricted to be on the left or right side
(west/east). For other nodes the port sides are not restricted.
. Edges are routed on a 10x10 grid.
To experiment with the settings, you can copy the code snippet to configure the router
More features offered by the EdgeRouter algorithm are shown by the
