Recursive Layering


The Recursive Layering indicates a direct or indirect recursive layering.

For example, in a routine call layer diagram this shows a recursive call.


Control Points

A ) moves the top right corner
B ) defines only the vertical position of the bottom left corner


Connection Order

Put any recursive layering below normal layering connections.

This makes the layout clearer because element B depends on A, therefore the connection from A to B should be above the recursive connection of B. If you think of it as a routine call layering, you see that the recursive call of B can only happen after routine A has called B.
