McCLIM grapher now supports vertical orientation

Wednesday, March 16, 2005

I thought I closely watched the changes to McCLIM's CVS tree, but I apparently missed an interesting one. Besides horizontal orientation, the CLIM graphing function format-graph-from-roots now supports also vertical orientation (:orientation :vertical). I don't know when this new functionality was implemented.

As a demo, this simple patch to Apps/Listener/dev-commands.lisp, against the latest CVS sources, adds the :orientation keyword argument to the CLIM Listener Show Class Subclasses and Show Class Superclasses commands. Here is how the latter may be used:

Show Class Superclasses (class) clim-clx::clx-medium
(keywords):Orientation (orientation[:HORIZONTAL]) :vertical
For large graphs with vertical orientation McCLIM still has a few rough edges.
