Family chart visualizes multiple inheritance diagram, dependencies diagram and graphs in form of multiple inheritance hierarchy diagram. It bundles parents and children together into one inheritance line where it is possible.
Chart nodes visibility depends on current cursor item. Chart shows all its siblings, children & parents in full item size for easy navigation of large hiearchies. Siblings are nodes which share common parent or child. In other words siblings are child nodes accessable via parent or parent nodes accessable via child.
Chart supports loops in inheritance. That means node can be parent of itself. Loop has no logical root so if chart has loops then first item in items collection is used as root. See "Loops" data set.
Widget automatically groups nodes into bundles in order to minimize connection lines clutter in layout. See "Skipped members" data set.
Root parents are placed close to their children. See "Side by side" data set.
