Tree Layout with Node Placers
This demo shows how to use node placers with the
Tree Layout. A node placer is responsible for the arrangement
of a local root node and all of its subtrees.
yFiles comes with predefined node placers that provide a variety of subtree arrangement
schemes. This example uses three of them:
Node 1 uses a LayeredNodePlacer, that places child nodes with the same
depth in the tree in the same horizontal layer.
Node 2 uses a LeftRightNodePlacer, that places child nodes left and
right of a single vertical bus.
Node 6 uses a DoubleLineNodePlacer, that places child nodes in two
You can copy the code snippet to configure the layout from
See the Tree Layout Demo for mode extensive examples of node placers.
See the Tree Layout section in the Developer's Guide for
an in-depth discussion of the relevant concepts.
