How to increase the width of a particular node of a hierarchy in D3.js?

Tags: ,



I have a hierarchy layout as shown in the image below where the 3rd layer of nodes contains words that are quite long so I want to give these nodes more space to their left to make it easier to read. But I am not sure what to change to do so.

enter image description here

Code for the node, path and the text:

    const root = hierarchy(investmentByLocationData).sort(
      (a, b) =>
        descending(a.height, b.height) || ascending(a.data.name, b.data.name)
    );

    root.dx = 12;
    root.dy = width / (root.height + 1);
    cluster().nodeSize([root.dx, root.dy])(root);

    const linkGenerator = linkHorizontal()
      .x((node) => node.y)
      .y((node) => node.x);

    svg
      .selectAll(".node")
      .data(root.descendants())
      .join((enter) =>
        enter
          .append("circle")
          .attr("fill", (d) => (d.children ? "#555" : "#999"))
      )
      .attr("r", 2.5)
      .attr("class", "node")
      .attr("cx", (node) => node.y)
      .attr("cy", (node) => node.x)
      .attr("r", 2.5)
      .transition()
      .duration(500)
      .delay((node) => node.depth * 300)
      .attr("opacity", 1);

    // links
    const enteringAndUpdatingLinks = svg
      .selectAll(".path")
      .data(root.links())
      .join("path")
      .attr("class", "link")
      .attr("d", linkGenerator)
      .attr("stroke-dasharray", function() {
        const length = this.getTotalLength();
        return `${length} ${length}`;
      })
      .attr("stroke", "black")
      .attr("fill", "none")
      .attr("stroke-opacity", 0.5)
      .attr("stroke-linejoin", "round")
      .attr("stroke-width", 0.4);

    if (data !== previouslyRenderedData) {
      enteringAndUpdatingLinks
        .attr("stroke-dashoffset", function() {
          return this.getTotalLength();
        })
        .transition()
        .duration(500)
        .delay((link) => link.source.depth * 500)
        .attr("stroke-dashoffset", 5);
    }

    //labels
    svg
      .selectAll(".text")
      .data(root.descendants())
      .join("text")
      .attr("x", (d) => d.y)
      .attr("y", (d) => d.x)
      .attr("dy", "0.31em")
      .attr("dx", (d) => (d.children ? -6 : 6))
      .text((d) => (d.children ? d.data.name : d.data.funding))
      .attr("text-anchor", (d) => (d.children ? "end" : "start"))
      .attr("font-size", (d) => (d.children ? 15 : 14));

Answer

After tinkering around with it I managed to solve it by altering root.dx and root.dy.

root.dx = 18;
root.dy = width / (root.height * 0.6);
