Animate Nodes in NodeXL

I have been using NodeXL Class Library ver in c# window based application.

Is there any way we can animate particular node like jumping of node or something which highlight the node from others

NodeXL is intended for static graphs (with some simple user interactions) and doesn't support WPF's animation features. You could try a brute-force animation that uses a timer to periodically move a vertex and redraw the graph. That might work for small graphs, but I'm sure it wouldn't perform well for larger graphs.

If you simply want to highlight a node in a static manner, you could select it (assuming you are using the NodeXLControl), or make its color, size, or shape different from the other vertices.
