Additional perspective settings

Perspectives include a number of notable properties that control their behavior and appearance. For a description of all perspective properties, see the IDL Specification.

Perspective type

Ilograph currently supports two perspective types: flow (default) and ring.

Controlling perspective context

What additional context, if any, is shown in a perspective can be controlled by specifying the additionalContext property on a perspective. Accepted values are:

  • all (default): Show all additional context in the perspective.
  • none: Don’t show any additional context in the perspective. The perspective will appear very flat.
  • super-only: Show only additional ancestor resources in the perspective.
  • sub-only: Show only additional descendant resources in the perspective.

Extending perspectives

A perspective can extend previously defined perspectives by specifying the extended perspective in its extends property. The extending perspective will inherit all properties and relations of the extended perspective.

Hiding perspectives

Perspectives can be hidden in the perspective tray by setting their hidden property to true.
