Note that these are not core API methods, as usual these methods are on the mxGraph class, where appropriate, and they perform the update encapsulation for you. Design Background - Some people are confused by the presence of visual information being stored by the model. These attributes comprise cell positioning, visibility and collapsed state. The model stores the default state of these attributes, providing a common place to set them on a per-cell basis, whereas, views can override the values on a per-view basis. The model is simply the first common place in the architecture where these attributes can be set on a global basis. Remember, this is a graph visualization library, the visualization part is the core functionality.

PHP Hello, World! The Hello, World! The example can be viewed by pointing Firefox or Internet Explorer to the link above either on the local filesystem or on a webserver. The library is loaded using the following code. The mxBasePath variable is used to define the path where the library loads its resources from. This variable must be defined prior to loading the library code and should not include a trailing slash.
This is the file you should use in production. During development, if you wish to change mxGraph sources, use the bootstrapped mxClient. The first part of the code checks if the browser that is displaying the page is supported by the library. It is recommended to do this as the first step of the program and display an error message if the browser is not supported. There is no convention for the name of the main function. The function is invoked from the onload handler in the page and may have any name and arguments.
The DOM node is passed to the main function and is used to construct the graph instance as shown below. If you want the container to have scrollbars, use the overflow:auto CSS directive instead of overflow:hidden in the style of the container. Graph The code constructs an empty graph model and passes the container and the empty model to the graph constructor. For this example, all default event handling is disabled in the last line. Vertices and Edges To insert vertices and edges, beginUpdate and endUpdate are used to create a transaction.
The endUpdate should always go into a finally-block to make sure it is always executed if the beginUpdate was executed. However, the beginUpdate should not be part of the try-block to make sure endUpdate is never executed if beginUpdate fails.
This is required for the model to remain in a consistent state, that is, for each call to beginUpdate there should always be exactly one call to endUpdate. The part within the try-block creates the vertices and edges for the graph. Graphs Instantiate mxGraph in order to create a graph.
This is the central class in the API. Everything else is auxiliary. The graph model has the following properties: The root element of the graph contains the layers. The parent of each layer is the root element. A layer may contain elements of the graph model, namely vertices, edges and groups. Groups may contain elements of the graph model, recursively. The graph and structural information is stored in the cells, as well as the user objects, which are used to store the value associated with the cells aka business objects.
Typically, the image is defined by either state. Due to the nature of the display, where all cells are created once and updated only if the model fires a notification for a change, you must invoke view.
Editors Instantiate mxEditor in order to create an editor. This is the central class in the editor package. Everything else in this package is auxiliary. To create a new editor instance and configure it using a config file, you can pass the name of the config file to the mxEditor constructor. CSS The CSS stylesheet contains the style definitions for various elements of the user interface, such as the rubberband selection, the in-place editor or the popup menu. It also contains the directives required to enable VML support in Internet Explorer, so it is substantial that the stylesheet is included in the page.
Additional stylesheets may either be added programmatically using mxClient. The Symbol-child element is a custom ie workflow element, and can have any name and any number of child elements and custom attributes. The label attribute is a special one that is used for the textual representation of the cell in the graph. The mxCell element is another special child node which contains the graphical information for the cell, namely, the cell-type, -style, -size and -position.
See mxGraph. The style- attribute is optional, and may be used to override the style defined in the template definition. Finally, the icon specifies the icon to be used for the toolbar item. Note that the as attribute is assumed to be the key for a language resource, in this case symbolTool.
If the resource is not defined in mxResources , then the attribute value is used as the label. This default encoding scheme may be overridden by custom codecs, which are registered in the mxCodecRegistry. Files The save, open, readGraphModel and writeGraphModel functions implement a standard mechanism for handling files in mxEditor.
The default implementation of mxEditor. It then uses the urlPost variable of the editor object to check if a post request should be issued. If the filename is server.

Currently we aim to support Windows, Linux and macOS for at least the three most recent minor versions of Python 3. If you are still using Python 2. See the next section about the requirements for compiling python-igraph from source. You will also need libxml2 for GraphML support.
