The hierarchy child (hierChild) algorithm works with the hierarchy root (hierRoot) algorithm to create hierarchical tree layouts. The hierarchy child algorithm aligns and positions its child layout nodes in a linear path under the hierRoot layout node.

Parameter

Values

Description

linDir

  • fromL (from left, default)

  • fromR (from right)

  • fromT (from top)

  • fromB (from bottom)

Specifies whether child nodes are arranged from left to right, right to left, top to bottom, or bottom to top.

chAlign

  • t (top)

  • b (bottom)

  • l (left, default)

  • r (right)

Specifies the alignment of child nodes.

secLinDir

  • none (default)

  • fromL (from left)

  • fromR (from right)

  • fromT (from top)

  • fromB (from bottom)

Specifies whether secondary child nodes are arranged from left to right, right to left, top to bottom, or bottom to top.

secChAlign

  • none (default)

  • t (top)

  • b (bottom)

  • l (left, default)

  • r (right)

Specifies the alignment of secondary child nodes.

horzAlign

  • l (left)

  • ctr (center, default)

  • r (right)

Aligns all the child nodes in the space reserved for the parent node, and adjusts child node positions along the x-axis.

vertAlign

  • t (top)

  • mid (middle, default)

  • b (bottom)

Aligns all the child nodes in the space reserved for the parent node, and adjusts child node positions along the y-axis.
