Match node data element and x,y position

0 votes

I import an excel file with nodes properties X and Y. And i want to map X and Y data with x and y node, then I use the Properties Manager, I create the mapping :

For ex :

Data source = X

Map to = X

Conversion = Automatic


But it doesn't work... x,y coordinates do not change.

There is nothing obvious that you're doing wrong, it should work in this way. (I suppose you have a similar mapping for y.)

Can you please check that importing the data from Excel worked correctly: select a node and check that it's Data values in the Properties View dock panel are correct.

If there is nothing wrong with these data values, please upload your GraphML file to your post (if it doesn't contain any confidential data): http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/1734/

I'll then have a closer look at the problem.

Thank you very mutch for your answer. Now it works properly. What I did is just deleting my node configuration, and create again exactly the same, and it worked since then... Maybe I did something wrong without notice it :-)
I'm glad to here that you solved the problem. Would be interesting to investigate why it didn't worked the first time since we haven't seen this problem before but I don't see a way to do this.

Anyways, have fun with yEd.
