VertexRenderingFunction

As of Version 12.0, VertexRenderingFunction has been superseded by VertexShapeFunction.

VertexRenderingFunction

is an option for GraphPlot and related functions that gives a function to generate the graphics primitives to use in rendering each vertex.

Details

  • VertexRenderingFunction->f specifies that each vertex should be rendered with the graphics primitives given by f[rk,vk], where rk is the coordinate position where the vertex is being placed, and vk is its name.
  • The graphics primitives obtained by applying VertexRenderingFunction are in effect directly spliced into the graphic generated by a function like GraphPlot. Inset can be used to insert an arbitrary expression.
  • VertexRenderingFunction->({}&) draws nothing for each vertex.
  • VertexRenderingFunction->Automatic renders vertices according to the style specified by VertexLabeling.
  • Settings for PlotStyle define defaults that can be overridden by explicit directives in VertexRenderingFunction.

Basic Examples  (4)

Draw each vertex using its labels in a disk:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Do not draw a vertex at all:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Use graphics:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

Draw vertices as spheres:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
