Why choose yFiles AJAX?
yFiles AJAX provides essential building blocks for visualizing and editing graphs, diagrams, and networks on the Web:
No Browser Plugins
Use any web browser, plugin-free.
Your yFiles AJAX application will run on any client web browser once deployed to the server.
Desktop Power on the Web
Easily create web applications as powerful as desktop applications.
Vector & Bitmap Modes
Visualize your diagrams as either bitmap tiles or SVG images.
Enjoy out-of-the-box support for touch navigation on iOS and Android devices.
Convenient Client API
The client API provides callbacks for all kinds of mouse and touch events on graph nodes or edges and convenience classes to facilitate the creation of custom controller code.
Extensible Server API
The server API offers the infrastructure needed to easily extend the server capabilities.
Please note that although basic touch navigation is enabled in most demo applications, only the Organization Chart Editor demo was created specifically for touch devices. The other demo applications were designed for desktop monitors and are therefore not suitable for viewing on small screens (e.g. smartphones).
Touch-enabled Organization Chart Editor
The Organization Chart Editor demo application displays an interactive organization chart for touch devices and desktop computers:
- supports both mouse and touch
- supports pinch gestures on iOS devices and on Android version 3.2 or later
- help widget provides details about supported gestures
The Graph Viewer demo application demonstrates user interaction possibilities such as zooming, panning, overview, and toggling additional node information.
The Using yFiles AJAX Tutorial gives step-by-step instructions for writing a slightly simpler version of this application.
The Organization Chart demo application shows how to create an interactive organization chart with data loaded from XML:
- uses group nodes to contain business units
- toggles between global and local views
- shows the chart as a tree in "structure view"
The Network Monitoring demo application shows how to use yFiles AJAX in combination with Ajax server polling to visualize model state changes on the client.
The Collapsible Tree demo application loads a tree with many nodes, whose branches can be expanded and collapsed. The nodes are rendered with custom icons that indicate their current state. After an expand or collapse operation, the graph is redrawn using a configurable layout algorithm.
The Extending yFiles AJAX Using a Custom Servlet Tutorial gives step-by-step instructions for writing a slightly simpler version of this application.
The Grouped Graph demo application presents the grouping support of yFiles AJAX. Group nodes can be collapsed and expanded. Whenever this happens, a new incremental layout is calculated and the graph is redrawn.
The Graph Editor demo application showcases the visualization and automatic layout capabilities of yFiles AJAX:
- add, delete, move, and label nodes and edges to create a graph
- interact using zoom and pan, undo/redo, copy/paste, and more
- apply layout algorithms
- download graph
The Swimlanes demo application shows the configuration of the server side views used for generating the image tiles or SVG export of the graph.
