Tree Visualization API / Operator.js


There are two types of operators: creation operators and modification operators. In combination, the scope of an operator (a tuple's shape or data element) and the type of an operator (creation or modification) yield four different kinds of operators:

  • Data creation
  • Shape creation
  • Data modification
  • Shape modification

Following table shows which types of operators are applicable at each stage and give some examples for them. Figure: Operator and their applicable stages
