is an option and property for Graph and related functions that specifies what style to use for edges.


  • The following option settings can be used:
  • Automaticuse automatic setting for style
    styleuse style for all edges
    {vivj->styleij,}use styleij for edge vivj
  • Edges with explicit edge style vw->style are taken to use the automatic style.
  • The wrapper Style[vw,style] is equivalent to Property[vw,EdgeStyle->style] and can be used when creating graphs in functions such as Graph etc.
  • EdgeStyle can apply to lines and faces.
  • To specify multiple style directives use Directive[style1,style2,].
  • Style and other specifications are effectively applied in the order EdgeStyle, Style and other wrappers, and EdgeShapeFunction, with later specifications overriding earlier ones.
