    Google API: DataTable,visualization,OrdChart: How to change Structure??

    Hi guys,

    can someone please help me figure out how to change the default structure of the OrgChart visualization from google dataTable. this is what I get from the default behavior.
    ok I can't insert pictures so I guess you can just run the code yourself, the default behavior is simple level after lever, but what if I want the employees under Nathalie to show vertically, not horizontally, and what if I want Debbie and Susan to have their own lines directly to Collen, one on the left other on the right. I cant figure it out form the documentation.

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML>
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    
    
    </head>
    <body>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.google.com/jsapi'></script>
        <script type='text/javascript'>
          google.load('visualization', '1', {packages:['orgchart']});
          google.setOnLoadCallback(drawChart);
          function drawChart() {
            var data = new google.visualization.DataTable();
            data.addColumn('string', 'Name');
            data.addColumn('string', 'Manager');
            data.addColumn('string', 'ToolTip');
            data.addRows([
              [{v:'Colleen', f:'Colleen<div style="color:red; font-style:italic">Manager</div>'}, '', 'Manager'],
              [{v:'SamanthaY', f:'<div style="color:red; font-style:italic">Portfolio: ...</div>Samantha'}, 'Colleen', 'Supervisor'],
    		  [{v:'NathalieT', f:'<div style="color:red; font-style:italic">Portfolio: Social Services, EMS and Public Health</div>Nathalie'}, 'Colleen', 'Supervisor'],
    		  [{v:'KimberleyH', f:'<div style="color:red; font-style:italic">Portfolio: SPB, BOQA, Housing & Long Term Care</div>Kimberley'}, 'Colleen', 'Supervisor'],
              ['Staff', 'SamanthaY', ''],
              ['Doron', 'NathalieT', 'Graphics Designer'],
    		  ['Lisa', 'NathalieT', 'Media Communications Specialist'],
    		  ['Karen', 'NathalieT', 'Senior Document Specialist'],
    		  ['Monique', 'NathalieT', 'Graphics Designer'],
              ['Ben', 'KimberleyH', 'Senior Document Specialist'],
    		  ['Samantha', 'KimberleyH', 'Senior Document Specialist'],
    		  ['Debbie', 'Colleen', 'Administrative Clerk'],
    		  ['Susan', 'Colleen', 'Web Project Coordinator']
            ]);
            var chart = new google.visualization.OrgChart(document.getElementById('chart_div'));
            chart.draw(data, {allowHtml:true});
          }
    </script>
    
     <div id='chart_div'></div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Thanks

    getting them to go vertical is covered in the example at the top of the documentation - just specify who is that person's superior:
    Code:
    ['Doron', 'NathalieT', 'Graphics Designer'],
    ['Lisa', 'Doron', 'Media Communications Specialist'],
    ['Karen', 'Lisa', 'Senior Document Specialist'],
    ['Monique', 'Karen', 'Graphics Designer'],
    
    //etc
    from the looks of it, getting lines to come out of the side of the boxes is not possible...

    Thanks Xelawho, but that would imply a hierarchy for employes that are on the same level, all those are equal under NathalieT, they need to be vertical but still "all" be under Nathalie

    ah, it sounds like both of those modifications would make it more like a flow chart than an org chart. But it looks like google's visualization API doesn't do flow charts yet. There is a feature request here if you want to star it, or you could look around for another API

    Thanks xelawho, I put in the request. Meanwhile can anyone make this happen using jQuary? there is an example here but I can't make it work http://www.getorgchart.com/Demos/Orientation .... http://www.getorgchart.com/Documentation#orientation

    Thanks again.
