The NodeXL class libraries were designed to help display network graphs in .NET applications.
To include a NodeXL network graph in a Windows Forms application, unzip the Zip file into any directory, then see the "NodeXLControl" topic in the NodeXLApi.chm help file. To include a NodeXL graph in another type of .NET application, see the "GraphDrawer" topic in the help file.
Important Note: You may see nothing but empty topics when you attempt to view the NodeXLApi.chm file. To fix this problem, which is due to a security restriction in Internet Explorer 7, right-click the chm file in Windows Explorer and click the "Unblock" button on the General tab.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· This release introduces grouping by motif simplification, which is a new way to reduce the visual complexity of your graph. With motif simplification, common repeating network motifs are replaced with easily understandable glyphs that require less space, are easier to understand, and reveal hidden relationships. NodeXL can group the graph's vertices using three kinds of motifs. Using fan motifs helps get rid of the large fans of singly-connected vertices around the edge of your graph. Connector motifs, instead, focus on redundant connections between a pair of anchor vertices. Finally, cliques allow you to simplify completely connected groups of vertices. To use this new feature, go to NodeXL, Analysis, Groups, By Motif in the ribbon.
