Walkthroughs

Good diagrams facilitate understanding. That’s their primary purpose. In order to facilitate this understanding, Ilograph diagrams support guided walkthroughs. Read more about walkthroughs in this blog post.

To define a walkthrough in a perspective, define one or more items in the perspectives walkthrough property.

Each walkthrough entry, called a slide, has a number of properties:

  • text: The text accompanying the slide. If not present, the previous slide’s text is used.
  • select: The resource identifier (or comma-separated identifiers) to select. Selected resource(s) are displayed more prominently, and unrelated resource are hidden. If not present, the previous slide’s select value is used.
  • expand: The resource identifier to expand (make full-screen). If not present, the previous slide’s expand value is used.
  • highlight: The resource identifier (or comma-separated identifiers) to highlight. Highlighted resource(s) have an animated border, and unrelated resource are faded out.
  • detail: The level of detail used during the slide. Can be between 0.001 (very low detail) and 1 (full detail). Defaults to 1 if not present.

A sample walkthrough is available in this ilograph diagram.
