the default configuration of a shape

object defaults;


// the default configuration for all shapes of the "rectangle" type
var diagram = new dhx.Diagram("diagram_container", {
    defaults: {
        rectangle: {
            fill: "#CEEFE1",
            stroke: "#0AB169",
            strokeWidth: 2,
            width: 140,
            height: 140,
            text: "Default text"


The defaults object can contain a number of key:value pairs where key is a type of a shape and value is the default config of the shape.

After specifying the properties for the shape of the rectangle type by default you can omit these attributes while preparing a data set for the "rectangle"-type shapes.
But, if necessary, you can redefine any of the properties while specifying them in the configuration object of the shape, as before.

There is no possibility to define type and id in the default config of a shape.
