In a previous post, we described how to create a layout for the Diagram component. In this post, we’ll focus specifically on how to control the initial position and zoom level of the Diagram.
By default, the Diagram content will be zoomed to fit and placed at the component center. This is done to allow users to see the Diagram as a whole. However, in some cases you might want to display the Diagram using a specific zoom level or pan the Diagram to a position to emphasize one of the nodes.

The method expects an object with x, y, w, h properties that describes the visible viewport in layout coordinates.
