EdgeRenderingFunction

EdgeRenderingFunction
is an option for GraphPlot and related functions which gives a function to generate the graphics primitives to use in rendering each edge.
  • EdgeRenderingFunction->g specifies that each edge should be rendered with the graphics primitives given by g[{ri, ..., rj}, {vi, vj}, lblij], where ri, rj are the beginning and ending points of the edge, vi, vj are the beginning and ending vertices, the lblij is any label specified for the edge.
  • The graphics primitives obtained by applying EdgeRenderingFunction are in effect directly spliced into the graphic generated by a function like GraphPlot. Inset can be used to insert an arbitrary expression.
Draw edges as red arrows set back by a small amount:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
 
Draw edges as cylinders and vertices as spheres:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
 
Do not draw edges at all:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
