I was recently asked if it is possible to give some layer a tag, so the viewing-users can show or hide this layer.
That would be very nice. For example in a server-farm you can show a layer which colorises the servers with a specific operating-system.
Does anyone has an idea how this could be reached with gliffy?
Thanks for ideas?
Hi Marcus and Heroly! I've got some good news for you :)
Our recent Confluence update allows you to connect layer visibility to a certain shape in your diagram (so you'll use a shape to create a button). Here's a rough screen grab of what you'll need to use.
Hope this helps - have fun with it!
The way the layer linking feature works is that you designate a particular shape as a "link" to enable the visibility of any desired combination of layers. The greyed out symbol indicates there is no shape currently selected for linking. Once you have selected a shape the layer palette provides a configuration mode to specify which layers you want to have visible as a result of someone clicking on that shape. In particular, there are four indicators for every layer. The bold font layer is the "active" layer meaning it is the layer upon which any new shapes dragged out onto the stage will reside. There is also a small eye symbol when you hover over a layer name that indicates its current visibility. There is also a lock symbol to demonstrate when a layer is locked and - when editing layer links - checkboxes to designate which combination of layers will become visible when the shape that is "linked" is clicked. Finally, I would say when exploring this feature, also keep in mind that the state of the visibility of layers when you click on the publish button will be the initial state for which that the diagram is first rendered.
Regarding when this feature will be available in Confluence server, we are targeting a release including this feature in the current quarter.
