Error in CopyGraphToBitmap module

Mar 12, 2013 at 9:26 AM
I am new to NodeXL. I am following a post from a member of this group to convert a GraphML file to image. I am getting an error at CopyGraphToBitmap method call


The code getting executed is

/// <summary>
/// Interaction logic for MainWindows.xaml
/// </summary>
public partial class MainWindows : Page
    NodeXLControl nodeXLControl1;
    public MainWindows()
        nodeXLControl1 = new NodeXLControl();

    private void btn_GetGraphFile_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        GraphMLGraphAdapter graphMLAdapter = new Smrf.NodeXL.Adapters.GraphMLGraphAdapter();
        nodeXLControl1.Graph = graphMLAdapter.LoadGraphFromFile("simple.graphml");

        Microsoft.Win32.SaveFileDialog s = new Microsoft.Win32.SaveFileDialog();
        s.FileName = "Graph For " + lblTargetName.Content.ToString();
        s.Filter = "Gif Files | *.gif |Png Files |*.png|Jpeg Files |*.jpg |Bmp Files |*.bmp|Tiff Files |*.tiff";
        s.DefaultExt = "gif";
        var result = s.ShowDialog();
        if (s.FileName != "")
            var extension = System.IO.Path.GetExtension(s.FileName);
            NodeXLControl.GraphImageCenterer ImgCenter = new NodeXLControl.GraphImageCenterer(nodeXLControl1);
            System.Windows.Size size = new Size();
            size.Height = 0;
            size.Width = 0;
            System.Drawing.Bitmap img = nodeXLControl1.CopyGraphToBitmap(4500, 4500);

            switch (extension.ToLower())
                case ".gif":
                    img.Save(s.FileName, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Gif);
                case ".png":
                    img.Save(s.FileName, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);
                case ".jpg":
                    img.Save(s.FileName, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
                case ".bmp":
                    img.Save(s.FileName, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
                case ".tiff":
                    img.Save(s.FileName, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Tiff);
                    throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException(extension);
I have tried many approaches but in vain.
Am I doing anything wrong here?

Resolved this issue. On right clicking on the dll and finding the properties, got to see that the dll was blocked. Once Unblocked this issue was not seen.
