Syntax

Nodes = getdescendants(BiographNode)
Nodes = getdescendants(BiographNode,NumGenerations)

Arguments

BiographNode

Node in a biograph object.

NumGenerations

Number of generations. Enter a positive integer.

Description

Nodes = getdescendants(BiographNode) finds a given node (BiographNode) all of its direct descendants.

Nodes = getdescendants(BiographNode,NumGenerations) finds the node (BiographNode) and all of its direct descendants up to a specified number of generations (NumGenerations).

Examples

  1. Create a biograph object.

    cm = [0 1 1 0 0;1 0 0 1 1;1 0 0 0 0;0 0 0 0 1;1 0 1 0 0];
    bg = biograph(cm)

    desNodes = getdescendants(bg.nodes(4));
    set(desNodes,'Color',[1 .7 .7]);
    bg.view;
