Interface CyNetworkViewFactoryProvider

public interface CyNetworkViewFactoryProvider

A singleton factory that is used to create CyNetworkViewFactory objects.

Apps that contribute renderers (via NetworkViewRenderer) may provide their own implementation of CyNetworkViewFactory, or they may acquire a reusable instance of CyNetworkViewFactory from this service. The CyNetworkViewFactory provided by this service may be configured using a provided VisualLexicon and optionally via a CyNetworkViewFactoryConfig object.

The CyNetworkViewFactoryFactory is available as an OSGi service.

Example of creating a CyNetworkViewFactory for a standard 2D renderer without additional configuration:

 CyNetworkViewFactoryProvider provider = getService(bc, CyNetworkViewFactoryProvider.class);
 CyNetworkViewFactory netViewFactory = provider.createNetworkViewFactory(myLexicon, MyRenderer.ID);

Example of creating a CyNetworkViewFactory with additional configuration for 3D rendering:

 CyNetworkViewFactoryProvider provider = getService(bc, CyNetworkViewFactoryProvider.class);
 CyNetworkViewFactoryConfig config = provider.createConfig(lexicon);
 config.addTrackedVisualProperty(MyVisualLexicon.SELECTED_NODES, BasicVisualLexicon.NODE_SELECTED, Boolean.TRUE);
 CyNetworkViewFactory netViewFactory = provider.createNetworkViewFactory(lexicon, MyRenderer.ID, config);
