Initial Display Mode

Choose what nodes are displayed in the initial view of the visual. Useful if you’re creating graph charts with a large number of nodes.

This setting will take effect once you have assigned Focus Node status to your data (1 = focus node, 0  = not a focus node) using Source Focus Node and/or Target Focus Node fields. 

  • All Nodes: The visual will display all nodes in the initial view, regardless of their Focus Node status.
  • Focus Nodes: The visual will only display Focus Nodes in the initial view. Other nodes will be collapsed and can be accessed by expanding their parent nodes.

This setting governs the default behavior of the visual upon a report page load. Users can alter the behavior on-the-fly if you have enabled the Display Mode toolbar button.
