Group metrics

Feb 1, 2012 at 10:46 PM

Hi! I've been trying to use the group metrics function of graph metrics, but ran into a problem. I was not able to copy and paste the error message, but it was along the lines of: "[KeyNotFoundException]: The given key was not present in the dictionary." Can you help?

Also, in the graph visualization, is there a way to show only certain groups? For instance, if I were interested in the within and between group connections of two groups (and there are forty groups total)? Thanks!

The "KeyNotFoundException" problem is a known bug that has been fixed in the latest release of NodeXL, which you can download from http://nodexl.codeplex.com/releases.

You do not need to uninstall your current version of NodeXL before installing the latest version.  Just run Setup.exe in the latest release.

There is an awkward way to hide selected groups, as long as they are not collapsed:

    1. Switch to the Groups worksheet.

    2. Select the groups in the Groups worksheet that you want to hide.

    3. Right-click the graph pane and select Edit Selected Vertex Properties from the right-click menu.

    4. In the Vertex Properties dialog box, set Visibility to Hide.

To make those groups visible again, do this:

    1. Clear the Visibility column on the Vertices worksheet.

It seems like new "Hide Selected Groups" and "Show All Groups" menu items might be useful, but we haven't added those yet.
