# Generate Graph Layout

### Description

This function generates plot coordinates for each variable in a graph that does not have them already. To this end, the well-known “Spring” layout algorithm is used. Note that this is a stochastic algorithm, so the generated layout will be different every time (which also means that you can try several times until you find a decent layout).

### Usage

1 | ```
graphLayout(x, method = "spring")
``` |

### Arguments

`x` |
the input graph, of any type. |

`method` |
the layout method; currently, only |

### Value

the same graph as `x`

but with layout coordinates added.

### Examples

1 2 | ```
## Generate a layout for the M-bias graph and plot it
plot( graphLayout( dagitty( "dag { X <- U1 -> M <- U2 -> Y } " ) ) )
``` |
