Release Notes

(This version of the source code is obsolete. It targets .NET Framework 3.5 and Excel 2007, and was the last version that did so. It is retained only for programmers who are working in the older development environment. The latest source code, which is available on the Source Code tab in CodePlex, targets .NET Framework 4.0 and Excel 2013.)

If you simply want to add a NodeXL graph to your own application, you probably don't need the NodeXL source code. Instead, please see the latest download for the "NodeXL Class Libraries" on the Downloads tab. The Class Libraries are a set of prebuilt .NET assemblies that contain a NodeXLControl, which you can drop into a WPF or Windows Forms application.

The NodeXL source code is only for programmers who want to customize the source code or see how it works.

This is a Visual Studio 2008 solution, although it can be used in Visual Studio 2010 with a few extra steps.

To use the NodeXL source code in Visual Studio 2008, do the following:
  1. Download the source code from the Source Code tab.
  2. See NodeXL\HowToBuildNodeXL.txt.

To use the NodeXL source code in Visual Studio 2010, do the following:
  1. Download the source code from the Source Code tab.
  2. Make copies of the original NodeXL\ExcelTemplate\*.Designer.cs files. There are eight of them: Sheet1.Designer.cs, Sheet2,Designer.cs, and so on.
  3. Make a copy of the original NodeXL\ExcelTemplate\GraphMetrics\GraphMetricDescriptions.Designer.cs file.
  4. Open NodeXL.sln in Visual Studio 2010, which starts the conversion wizard.
  5. Let the conversion wizard run to completion. The conversion succeeds without complaint, but unfortunately the *.Designer.cs files get mangled during the conversion.
  6. Overwrite the (badly converted) *.Designer.cs files with the copies you made earlier.
  7. See NodeXL\HowToBuildNodeXL.txt.

You need Excel 2007 if you want to build the Excel-related projects in the solution. If you do not need the Excel-related projects, you can remove them from the solution.
