Show multiple edges between two vertices

Dec 15, 2010 at 3:13 AM


I'm using the NodeXL library in WPF application and I'm wondering if there's a way to show multiple edges between two vertices to support a scenario similar to this:

Person 1 ----is a professional contact of ---Person 2

Person 1 ----is a personal contact of ---Person 2

Right now, the two edges are overlapping in the graph. Adding an edge label doesn't help either :-)

Not yet.  We're talking about adding the type of edge routing that would allow parallel edges to be distinguished, but we haven't implemented that yet.

One workaround is to make one edge wider than the other and decrease its opacity, allowing the other edge to show through.  That can work with two parallel edges, but not when there are three or more.
