Property files

Property files can be used to set global properties of the graph visualisation. Examples of such properties are background color, default color of nodes or layout properties. More advanced properties set the renderers; these are java classes that are used to render nodes and edges. If you want to know more about writing custom renderers, see the developer's guide.

The two applets on this page use two different property files (for the header applet and for the menu on the left ), you can use them as an example.
