I am wanting to understand the value system used to locate ports around a node. I have been using GoObject.MiddleRight, etc. I know there are numerical values, and these seem to follow the pattern of two “circles” around the node, the inner circle being the corners (tl - 2, tr - 4, br - 8, bl - 16), where each value is 2 times the previous. And the outer circle being the centers (tc - 32, mr - 64, bc - 128, ml - 256).
So some questions:
What is the meaning of these values/locations? Why was this pattern chosen?
Can you use arbitrary values to position a port exactly where you want it, e.g., 38 to be just right of 32? What is the arbitrary value layout?
