The hierarchy root (hierRoot) algorithm works with the hierarchy child (hierChild) algorithm to create hierarchical tree layouts. The hierRoot algorithm aligns and positions the hierRoot layout node in relation to the hierChild layout nodes.
Specifies the layout of hierarchy root and child nodes.
Aligns all the child nodes in the space reserved for the parent node and adjusts child node positions along the x-axis.
Aligns all the child nodes in the space reserved for the parent node and adjusts child node positions along the y-axis.
Specifies the width of the bounding box for a node.
Specifies the height of the bounding box for a node.
Specifies the amount to offset the alignment of a node.
Specifies the distance between child nodes, which is typically between the text node and the hierChild nodes.
