The roots of the graph.
A graph pane calculates the items of the graph by calling the
on each of its
, and then calling it again on each of the children recursively until no more children are found. The
gets called with an item of the graph and should return a list of the children of that item.

When a graph pane wants to display nodes and edges, it creates instances of

is called to create an element for each node, and by default it creates an instance of
. It gets passed the graph pane and the item corresponding to the node, and should return an instance of a subclass of simple-pane or pinboard-object. Note that the name of the initarg is a little misleading, as in most cases you should return a pinboard-object rather than a pane. If you use your own class which has its own geometry requirements, you should define a calculate-constraints method for it, which should use with-geometry on the object to set
%width% to the desired width, and
%min-height% to the desired height. See the example in:
edge-pane-function is called to create an element for an edge. The default creates an object of the class specified by edge-pinboard-class . If edge-pane-function is supplied, it must be a function that takes three arguments: the pane and the two items that are connected by the edge, and must return an element (a simple-pane or a pinboard-object).
The highlighting of the children is controlled as described for pinboard-layout, but for
