Class EdgeList

  • public class EdgeList
    extends Object
    This class implements a wrapper for a List of CyEdges that can be used by the Tunables mechanism. Currently, it is only implemented by command tunables so it will be ignored in GUI (Swing) contexts. A typical use might look like:
     public EdgeList edgeList = new EdgeList(null);
     @Tunable(description="Edges to select", context="nogui")
     public EdgeList getedgeList() {
            edgeList.setNetwork(network); // This assumes the network is 
                                          // made available via some other mechanism
            return edgeList;
     public void setedgeList(EdgeList setValue) {}

    • Constructor Detail

      • EdgeList

        public EdgeList()
        Empty constructor for an EdgeList. Use this when the target network won't be known until the Tunable is used.
      • EdgeList

        public EdgeList​(CyNetwork targetNetwork)
        Constructor for EdgeList when the network is known at time of creation.
        targetNetwork - the network for the edges to be returned
    • Method Detail

      • setNetwork

        public void setNetwork​(CyNetwork network)
        Set the network to be used by this EdgeList
        network - the network to use for finding the edges
      • getNetwork

        public CyNetwork getNetwork()
        Return the network used by this EdgeList
        the network to use for finding the edges
      • setValue

        public void setValue​(List<CyEdge> edgeList)
        Set the edgeList for this tunable
        edgeList - the list of edges
      • getValue

        public List<CyEdge> getValue()
        Return the edgeList for this tunable
        the list of edges
