Edge Grouping Demo
This demo shows the possibilities of edge and port grouping using the example of
HierarchicLayout. Edge groups lead to edges sharing some segments while
port groups will combine the edges only in their first segment.
Things to Try
Use the combo-box in the toolbar to toggle between edge grouping and port grouping.
Customize the grouping information in the graph using the context menu. You can either:
- Right-Click on the canvas and group/ungroup all edges at the same time
Right-Click on an edge or selection of edges and group/ungroup the incident edges
Right-Click on a node or selection of nodes and group/ungroup the incident edges
Apply a complete layout from scratch by pressing the Layout-Button in the toolbar.
Setting incremental edge or port groups can lead to uncommon routings, thus it may be
necessary to calculate a new layout.
- Reset the graph and start again with the initial sample.
