Drop nodes or edges.

sg_drop_nodes(sg, data, ids, delay, cumsum = TRUE)

sg_drop_edges(sg, data, ids, delay, cumsum = TRUE, refresh = FALSE)



An object of class sigmajsas intatiated by sigmajs.


Data.frame (or list) of nodes or edges.


Ids of elements to drop.


Column name containing delay in milliseconds.


Whether to compute the cumulative sum of the delay.


Whether to refresh the graph after node is dropped, required to take effect, if you are running force the algorithm is killed and restarted at every iteration.


The delay helps for build dynamic visualisations where nodes and edges do not disappear all at the same time. How the delay works depends on the cumsum parameter. if TRUE the function computes the cumulative sum of the delay to effectively drop each row one after the other: delay is thus applied at each row (number of seconds to wait before the row is dropped *since the previous row*). If FALSE this is the number of milliseconds to wait before the node or edge is dropped to the visualisation; delay is used as passed to the function.
