Marks a node as a cluster

Property Value
Type: advanced
Identifier: org.eclipse.elk.alg.libavoid.isCluster
Meta Data Provider: options.LibavoidMetaDataProvider
Value Type: boolean
Default Value: false (as defined in org.eclipse.elk.alg.libavoid)
Applies To: nodes


This option marks a node as a cluster, resulting in its children being handled as relative to the graph itself while the marked node is only added as a cluster. Note that clusters are experimental and can therefore have a negative impact on performance. The cluster node cannot have: - clusters as children - outgoing or incoming connections (directly to the node) - ports Edges into or out of the cluster must be added across the cluster’s borders, without the use of hierarchical ports.
