Priority (ELK Box)

Property Value
Type: advanced
Identifier: org.eclipse.elk.priority
Meta Data Provider: core.options.CoreOptions
Value Type: int
Applies To: nodes, edges


Defines the priority of an object; its meaning depends on the specific layout algorithm and the context where it is used.

Additional Documentation

Priorities set on nodes determine the order in which they are placed: boxes with a higher priority will end up before boxes with a lower priority. Boxes with equal priorities are sorted from smaller to bigger unless the layout algorithm is set to interactive mode.
