Hierarchic Layout with PortCandidateSet
This demo shows how to use a PortCandidateSet for the
Hierarchic Layout to define the port locations for a
node as well as control how many edges can be connected to each port.
For the turquoise node, a
PortCandidateSet is used that contains four port candidates, one for each
side of the node.
Each PortCandidate only allows for one connecting edge, hence the four
incoming edges are distributed to the four port candidates.
Click the button in the toolbar to toggle between
Hierarchic Layout with and without a configured port
You can copy the code snippet to configure the layout from
See the Restricting Port Locations section in
the Developer's Guide for an in-depth discussion of the relevant concepts.
