Provide a facility to display Jade data in a mindmap / neural style

Jade is extremely powerful to create objects with multiple relationships to other objects, 1 to 1/many or many to many, and this is excellent for developing applications. However in terms of visualisation of this data the facilities are very poor in the GUI. It would be great to have a control / form that you could pass an object to and, potentially via configuration or setting properties on Properties (of the object) or on the control / form have it represented to n levels in the concentric circles of relationships. This is similar to the relationships

Perhaps the object image / representation could be defined (within some size boundaries). Object text content could be retrieved from a stub method call defined on Object. A double click outside the prime object would bring that to the fore and rotate the view to bring in the new data and roll out that now too far away to be seen. A double click on the prime object could open the business form for that object. A right click on a point, perhaps only the centre, would bring up a context menu and allow object defined actions.

For some examples of the kinds of outputs search for 'mindmap visualisation' in Google or the search engine of your choice. Specifically have a look at https://datavizproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/bubble-mind-map.jpg for one example.

    Hi Kerry, This has been reviewed and I am sorry it is not going to be considered for the Roadmap. John R.

    Nevermind, you referred to this in the first paragraph.

    There is an existing feature that may provide some of what you are looking for. From a Hierarchy Browser, right click a class and select Relationships. This will display a Class diagram with the relationships belonging to all properties.
