Interface Cy2DGraphicLayer

  • All Superinterfaces:

    public interface Cy2DGraphicLayer
    extends CustomGraphicLayer
    Custom graphic layer interface that allows a custom graphics implementation to draw directly onto the CyNetworkView's Graphics2D object.

    Module: presentation-api

    To use this in your app, include the following dependency in your POM:


    Cytoscape Backwards Compatibility (SPI Interface): We expect that this interface will be implemented. Therefore to maintain backwards compatibility this interface will only be modified for major version updates.
    • Method Detail

      • draw

        void draw​(Graphics2D g,
                  Shape shape,
                  CyNetworkView networkView,
                  View<? extends CyIdentifiable> view)
        This method is called by Cytoscape when a CyNetworkView is being updated in order to let the custom graphics draw onto its Graphics2D object.
        g - The graphics object to draw onto
        shape - The node view's shape or the edge or network view's bounding box
        networkView - The network view being updated
        view - The view object that has this layer's CyCustomGraphics as a visual property value (so far, only CyNode views are supported by Cytoscape's default RenderingEngine)
