Add new edges with identical definitions as with a selection of edges


Add edges in the same direction of one or more edges available as an edge selection in a graph object of class dgr_graph. New graph edges have the same edge definitions as those in the selection except with new edge ID values. There is also the option to assign a common rel grouping to the newly created edges. Upon addition of the edges, the edge selection will be retained for further selection or traversal operations.


add_forward_edges_ws(graph, rel = NULL)



A graph object of class dgr_graph.


An optional string to apply a rel attribute to all newly created edges.


This function makes use of an active selection of edges (and the function ending with _ws hints at this).

Selections of edges can be performed using the following selection (select_*()) functions: select_edges(), select_last_edges_created(), select_edges_by_edge_id(), or select_edges_by_node_id().

Selections of edges can also be performed using the following traversal (trav_*()) functions: trav_out_edge(), trav_in_edge(), trav_both_edge(), or trav_reverse_edge().


A graph object of class dgr_graph.
