Regenerating graph

Feb 2, 2015 at 8:42 AM
Hi -

I have generated a graph using nodexl. Consider that the graph contains around 1000 nodes. usually 1000 nodes looks complex on a screen. So, I wanted to select only 200 nodes via mouse click from those 1000 nodes. Can i redraw the graph for those selected 200 nodes, so that there will be only 200 nodes on the screen after redraw and that is visibly clear than that of 1000 nodes.

I am using with nodeXL. Need minimum coding effort.

to show only the selected vertices:
  1. Show graph
  2. Select the wanted vertices in the graph pane (you can select multiple vertices by holding Ctrl and clicking on a vertex in the graph pane)
  3. Right-click in the graph pane -> Toggle selection (this command will select all other vertices)
  4. Right-click in the graph pane -> Edit selected vertex properties ->Visibility: Hide -> OK (this will hide all the unwanted vertices)
  5. Refresh graph
