Partition Grid Demo
This demo application lets you experience the usage of a PartitionGrid for
hierarchic and organic layout calculations.
Nodes are assigned to columns/rows by their fill color (gray nodes are unassigned) and the
calculated partition grid is visualized after a layout run to show the effect of the node
assignment to the layout.
Things to Try
Click the Hierarchic or Organic button of the toolbar to trigger the corresponding
layout algorithm based on the current node assignment. Note that, the Organic layout
does not support stretching of a group node if it contains child nodes assigned to
different rows or columns. In this case, the Organic layout button will be disabled.
Change the partition cell of a (non-gray) node by moving it to a different partition
cell. For the gray nodes that do not have currently active restrictions, select the
desired ones and press the
-button from the
toolbar to add restrictions based on their current location. Then, move them to other
partition cells, if desired. Nodes that are positioned outside the partition grid do not
receive a restriction.
Add/remove active restrictions to/from the selected nodes, using buttons
- Configure the partition grid using the settings panel on the right.
Remove a row/column from the partition grid, by right-clicking on a cell that belongs to
the desired row/column and use the "Delete Row" or "Delete Column" of the settings panel
on the right.
