This topic describes how to change a layout algorithm used to arrange Treemap tiles. To do this in the Designer, go to the Treemap's
menu and open the
To change a layout algorithm, select the required direction in the Layout Algorithm list. The following algorithms are available.
Slice and Dice
algorithm divides the space between items, slicing it in the specified direction depending on item value.
algorithm arranges tiles so that their width/height ratio will be closer to 1.
algorithm is a modified version of the Squarified algorithm. The difference here is that tiles are drawn side by side as columns or rows.
You can also set a layout direction to specify an arrangement of tiles depending on their sizes. The Treemap arranges tiles in descending order from maximum to minimum values. To do this, select the required direction in the
