Features can be filtered by label if you add a label attribute to the TYPE element.
Regexp matching (since 0.7)
The id, method, and label fields of the TYPE element can take regular expression
arguments as well as exact matches, e.g.:
Orientation matching (since 0.11)
Features can be filtered by orientation, e.g.:
POINTS glyph (since 0.9)
The POINTS glyph type can be used to draw scatter plots. It will probably be
deprecated in Dalliance 0.10 in favour of the more general SCATTER attribute, and
may be removed in the future.
SIZE (since 0.10)
This can be applied to small glyphs to specify the size. If not specified, size is equal to the height.
Mostly useful in conjuction with the SCATTER attribute.
RSIZE (since 0.12)
This property can be applied to small glyphs to specify their size, as an alternative to SIZE.
The value should be between 0 and 1, and controls glyph size as a fraction of the total height of the track.
This attribute can be applied to all the "small" glyph types (DOT, EX, STAR, etc.) to convert them
into points on a scatter plot. When this attribute is set to "yes", the y position of the glyph is adjusted
according to the feature's score, and the MIN, MAX and HEIGHT attributes
are interpreted as for line-plots and histograms.
SQUARE glyph (since 0.10)
Rendered the same as BOX but the width is independent of the size of the underlying feature.
Usable in scatter plots.
STAR glyph (since 0.10)
A star. Number of points can be configured using the POINTS attribute (default is 5). Usable
in scatter plots.
PLIMSOLL glyph (since 0.11)
A circle with a vertical line through the mid-point -- good for representing point features.
BGITEM option (since 0.11)
Enable per-feature setting of a feature's primary colour (works with BED/bigBed files with colours stored in the "itemRgb" field).
As an alternative to writing XML stylesheets, it is possible to write stylesheets in a JSON-encoded notation, directly
in your Dalliance configuration file. The glyphs, attribute, and filters available in JSON-encoded stylesheets are
exactly the same as in XML stylesheets. It currently isn't possible to load JSON-encoded stylesheets from external
files, although this may change in the future.
Equivalent to the TYPE ID in an XML stylesheet. Required, but may be set to default
May be low, medium, or high.
to use. It may have other properties (e.g. BGCOLOR, BUMP, etc.) which are interpretted
the same as in an XML stylesheet.
