Diagram with different layout for each level

Thread ID:

Asked On September 24, 2015 07:47 AM UTC

Is it possible to create a diagram in which every "level" has a (different) layout diagram?
I would like to have a kind of union/composition of different layout diagrams type. 
For example, I would like to create a diagram in which I have a Radial Tree Layout, and the center node of my radial diagram, it's connected itself to another diagram, for example a DirectedTreeLayout.
Or, for example, each node of the (second) level of the Radial Tree Layout is itself, the first level of others DirectedTreeLayouts.

Like in the attached pics.

Hi Ivan,
In order to achieve your requirement, please use LayoutManager’s “Nodes.AddRange” method to create range of nodes and apply layout for that nodes only. Please refer to the below code example and sample.
Code example:


RadialTreeLayoutManager radialLayout = new RadialTreeLayoutManager();

radialLayout.Model = diagram2.Model;



this.diagram2.LayoutManager = radialLayout;

The example seems to not working very well.
when you define the 3 (different) layout, only the last one seems to be conisdered. 

For example, You wrote:
And all the nodes are disposed in a general DirectedLayoutDiagram. (the radial has not been created).

On the other hand, if I change in this way:
Everything become a general Radial Diagram. And no other diagram type are considered.
The idea of applying different layout to a different range is node is the one I searched for. 
But, actually, it doesn't work.

Am I considering something wrong?
