highlight a subgraph of a graph
HighlightSubgraph(G, S, C1, C2, ip)
HighlightSubgraph(G, S, edgestylesheet=[ optionsequence ], vertexstylesheet=[ optionsequence ], ip)
a subgraph or a list or set of subgraphs of G
(optional) colors for edges and vertices respectively
(optional) equation of the form inplace = true or inplace = false
(optional) optionsequence is a sequence of keyword options to specify the style or a list of such sequences
By default the DrawGraph command draws the edges and vertices of the graph with the same set of style options. The command HighlightVertex, allows you to specify individual styles for specified vertices overriding the default or a previously set style.
Given only a graph G and a subgraph or subgraphs S, HighlightSubgraph marks the components of the specified subgraphs as to be rendered with the default highlight style.
The simplest way to customize the rendering is to give C1, a color for the edges, and C2, a color for the vertices. The colors can be given in any form understood by Maple. See ColorTools/Formats for details. When the color of a vertex is set the color of the vertex label is set automatically to an appropriately contrasting grayscale.
If S is a list of subgraphs then a list of colors or stylesheets can be used to associate a different color or style to each member.
By default, this command modifies G and returns nothing. If you supply the option inplace = false, then instead the changes are applied to a copy of G, and that copy is returned.
More precise control of the style can be set using stylesheet options. The stylesheet options are understood as modifiers to the default highlight style. So, for example, if a color is not specified the default highlight color is used. If the stylesheet options and a color C1 or C2 are both given, the colors is ignored.
Vertex Stylesheet Options
The styles that are understood for vertices are:
border : whether to draw the border, true or false
color : color of the vertex. See ColorTools/Format
fontcolor : color of the vertex label. See ColorTools/Format
fontsize : size of the vertex label, a positive integer in points
fontfamily : font family to use for the vertex label, a string. See plot/options
fontstyle : font style to use for the vertex label, a string. See plot/options
font : shorthand to specify a vertex label font as a list either [family, size] or [family, style, size]
padding : extra space around vertex label, a number in points
shape : shape of the vertex, a string understood by plottools/polygonbyname or default. Examples:
common polygons up to ten sides e.g. hexagon
arbitrary regular polygons given as number-gon e.g. 7gon
a regular star version of polygons with more than 4 sides will be drawn if prefixed (with or without spaces) with star e.g. star hexagon
a flattened version of a polygon will be drawn if prefixed with wide e.g. wide pentagon
the wide and star prefixes can be combined in any order
polygons are drawn with a flat bottom unless prefixed with inverted in which case it will have point bottom e.g. inverted 9gon
the inverted, star, and wide prefixes can be combined, but inverted must come first, though it can be abbreviated to inv, e.g. invwide13gon
thickness : thickness of the border, a nonnegative value
Edge Stylesheet Options
The styles that are understood for edges are:
arrowpos : the position of the arrow on a directed edge, a number between 0 and 1
arrowsize : the length, in points, of the arrow on a directed edge, a positive number
color : color of the edge line. See ColorTools/Format
fontcolor : color of the weight label. See ColorTools/Format
fontsize : size of the weight label in points, a positive integer
fontfamily : font family to use for the weight label, a string. See plot/options
fontstyle : font style to use for the weight label, a string. See plot/options
font : shorthand to specify the weight label font as a list either [family, size] or [family, style, size]
linestyle : style of the edge line, a string: solid, dot, dash, dashdot, longdash, spacedash, or spacedot. See plot/options
thickness : thickness of the edge line, a nonnegative value
