Hello,

Is it possible to use LayeredLayoutProvider with keeping the order of nodes? The use-case for this: The user creates a graph uses the auto-layout and exchanges to positions of two nodes and uses the auto-layout.

I've checked most of the options, but i don't have an idea which comes next to my requirement. So i am wondering, if its even possible. Thank you in advance.

Best regards
MKaraman

It depends on which _order_ you mean exactly and how strict you require the algorithm to be.

You could have a look at the _User-Hints_ examples, the vertical one, for instance.

Thank you for your help. The example is very good to understand the different behavior of the ports.

The vertical node order works only for 2 Nodes, if i have 3 or more it seems that the list order doesn't determine the order in the layout. Is this my misunderstanding or a bug in the layouting algorithm?

The following example can reproduce my problem: Just by ordering the edges doesn't influence the order in the layout. Due to my understanding the layout result of the nodes must be 2, 3, 4 .. but i get 4, 2, 3

Quote:

node default {
algorithm: layered
nodeLabels.placement: "INSIDE V_TOP H_CENTER"
label "Default" { layout [ size: 43, 15 ] }
node n1 {
portConstraints: FIXED_ORDER
port p1 { side: EAST index: 0 }
label "1"
}
node n4 { port p1 { side: EAST index: 0 } label "4" }
node n2 { port p1 { side: EAST index: 0 } label "2" }
node n3 { port p1 { side: EAST index: 0 } label "3" }

edge n1.p1 -> n2.p1
edge n1.p1 -> n3.p1
edge n1.p1 -> n4.p1
}


Thank you in advance.

Have you looked into the considerModelOrder property?

The property is designed to keep the order of the nodes and edges as they are in the model.
However, it does so only if this does not produce additional crossings.
