nodeWeights(object, index, ..., attr = "weight", default = 1)

\S4method{nodeWeights}{graph,character}(object, index, attr, default)

\item{object}{A graph, any object that inherits the \code{graph} class.}

\item{index}{If supplied, a character or numeric vector of node names or indices.}


\item{attr}{The name of the node attribute to use as a weight. You can view the list of defined node attributes and their default values using nodeDataDefaults.}

\item{default}{The value to use if \code{object} has no node attribute named by the value of \code{attr}. The default is the value 1.}
A named vector with the node weights. The names of the vector are the names of the specified \code{index}, or all nodes if \code{index} was not provided.
A generic function that returns the node weights of a graph. If \code{index} is specified, only the weights of the specified nodes are returned. The user can control which node attribute is interpreted as the weight.
The weights of all nodes identified by the \code{index} are returned. If \code{index} is not supplied, the weights of all nodes are returned.

By default, \code{nodeWeights} looks for an node attribute with name "weight" and, if found, uses these values to construct the node weight vector.
You can make use of attributes stored under a different name by providing a value for the \code{attr} argument.
For example, if \code{object} is a graph instance with an node attribute named "WTS", then the call \code{nodeWeights(object, attr="WTS")} will attempt to use those values.

If the graph instance does not have an node attribute with name given by the value of the \code{attr} argument, \code{default} will be used as the weight for all nodes.
Note that if there is an attribute named by \code{attr}, then its default value will be used for nodes not specifically customized.
See nodeData and nodeDataDefaults for more information.

V <- LETTERS[1:4]
g <- graphNEL(nodes = V, edgemode = "directed")
nodeWeights(g, "B")
nodeWeights(g, attr = "WT", default = 3)
