Dynamically edit node border color?

Hi Everyone,

Is there a method to dynamically set the border color of nodes? I can do it for the node fill color using the color field when generating search results however there isn't an option for border.

Looking at the SimpleXML I can see it has an option flow_map_viz.flow_map_viz.node_broder_color which sets it for all and is fixed.

I'm trying to make use of the border color to indicate an issue with the host node whereas the fill is the service running on it and being able to dynamically do this would be great.

Thanks!

Yeah unfortunatly there isn't a way to do this at the moment sorry. You could try put one node over the top of another and just change the size?

Actually probably a better way would be to enable "HTML in labels" in advanced settings, and then you can pass a small block of HTML formatted text, something like eval label = "<div style=\"border: 2px solid " + my_color_variable + "\">" + some node contents + "</div>"

This basically gives you infinite customizability but it is a bit ugly.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for getting back so quickly. I tried this approach and I'm seeing a border around the label/text itself (the screen capture above) and not the node border (the screen capture below).

Btw love the add-on!

Edit: Actually I figured that it's a DIV so I can change the width and height to match. I'll have a play with this, thanks.

Yeah by injecting your own HTML with CSS you can do anything you want

Thanks Chris, works a treat. I've just stuck the labels into a macro to clean up the search a little.
