A very simple idea : on the network chart, I would like to display arrows either parent=> child or child=>parent. something pretty much like that :
Best regards,SimonPS : with the lack of persisting colors/legend, it's the other reason it's pretty hard to use
Thank you for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While this is something we understand would be useful, it's not on the short-term roadmap. Please continue to show your support for this idea.
Please note that the network chart is still open source:
Feel free to fork and suggest pull requests for improvements and bug fixes. Changes will be moderated and reviewed before inclusion in future bundle versions. Please note that emphasis is on backward compatibility, i.e. breaking changes will most likely not be approved.
Fyi, the map chart has a nice line layer with arrows which can be used for graphs. Check out

Forgot: I would also like to see directional features!A more complete DAG implementation, in other words.
A quick look in the GitHub repo shows the network extension actually DOES use vis.js - but an older version (4.2.1), GitHub link.
That older version is no longer maintained/developed, last update was several years ago.
A fork of it is on the other hand actively maintained: https://visjs.orgGitHub link.
As mentioned in previous post I've used this new version in a few projects - it's pretty slick.The best approach would be to port the extension to make it use the newer vis.js.Again - time... Anyone interested/with time to spare?
@simonaubert I have updated the extension to include arrows, se examples below.
Questions for you/others:
1. As there are lots of options that could be potentially exposed to the developer, I've added sections (Nodes, Edges, General) in the property pane. Does this make sense?
2. Anything else beyond edge arrows that should be prioritised at this point? To give you an idea of what can be done, here are some examples.
My current plan is to release a new version of the extension with edge arrows, then let Qlik review it and hopefully include it in future Sense versions.But there are lots of things that could be added in future versions - let's discuss what could be useful.
Hello @mountaindude ,First of all, mazel tov for your work, that's pretty cool 🙂As other things to prioritize on this network chart from most to least:-management of colors as I pointed herehttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Suggest-an-Idea/Network-chart-extension-persisting-colors/idi-p/160329...-custom shapehttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Suggest-an-Idea/Network-chart-custom-dynamic-node-shape/idi-p/1789429-custom linkhttps://community.qlik.com/t5/Suggest-an-Idea/Network-chart-format-link-between-nodes-dotted-hyphen-...
(Yes, I did wrote a few idea on the topic 😄 )For reference, the link to your amazing workhttps://github.com/mountaindude/network-vis-chart
Best regards,SimonPS : did you upload the version with your changes on github ? I'm unable to find the arrow option.
@Patric_NordstromHello. Can we imagine that Qlik implements the cool work done by @mountaindude for November 2021 release ?Best regards,Simon
@mountaindudeHello. I'm very sorry but I don't manage to use what you develop. Usually, we got a .qext and a few .js but there ? Can you share on github how you use it ?Thanks
