Instead of coloring the whole node’s background, we want to have a banner, which would be a section at the top of each node that would contain a variable number of colored segments. Each segment should also support individual text and tooltip.
Our question is: is it possible to fulfill these requirements without turning the nodes into groups and segments into nodes? Some of our nodes that would need to support a banner are already implemented as groups with placeholders, so it probably wouldn’t be possible to implement banner segments as nodes in this case.
We were thinking about implementing the banner as a shape with a gradient background, but then we don’t see how to support segment-specific text and tooltip.
You’re right: the picture doesn’t show text for each segment. We do have a requirement for it though. Basically, we need to show a number value in each segment. I can see how your solution outline could work for segment-specific tooltips, but do you have an idea for segment-specific text?
