Network chart : custom (dynamic) node shape

Hello all,

As of today, Network chart nodes are poorly customizable : dot, square, diamond, or triangle. What I suggest is a fully custom node shape :
-static or dynamic (example : one shape by item category)
-raster or vector graphic (you can find my idea on SVG implementation here : https://community.qlik.com/t5/Suggest-an-Idea/Native-SVG-support-for-image-icons-thumbnails/idi-p/15...

Best regards,

I am currently doing some work on this extension. Edge arrows have been added so far, see https://community.qlik.com/t5/Suggest-an-Idea/Arrows-for-network-chart/idc-p/1828506#M7021

The easiest solution to implement might be something like this:

1. Create a Sense content library with the icons/images you want to use in the chart.

2. Make those images available in the extension, for use instead of the standard node shapes. Or as images within those standard node shapes.
