Project Description
GraphX for .NET is an advanced graph visualization library based on Graph# algorithmic blueprints that uses WPF for rendering (WinForms interop is also working). I've coded it when i felt that Graph# is outdated and can't be easily enhanced in the means of performance and feature implementation.

GraphX is free product opened for collaboration.

If you want to donate for the future project development you are welcome!


GraphX has moved to the portal! You can find Documentation, Forums and Downloads there! Repository will remain on Codeplex.

Library depends on:

Library uses partial code from:



  • Performance oriented library design to deal with large amount of graph vertices
  • Internal support for Graph# algorithms ( FR, KK, ISOM, LinLog, Simple Tree, Simple Circle, Sugiyama, CompoundFDP, FSA/FSAOneWay overlap removal)
  • Advanced graph edges features:
    • Support for parametrized edge routing algorithms (SimpleER, EdgeBundling, PathFinder)
    • Support for dynamic and/or single edge routing calculation (for ex. for dragged vertex)
    • Edges curving (smoothing) technique that can be applied to any ER algorithm
    • Dynamic templated edge labels with edge alignment support
    • Easy templating including dashed edges of several types
    • Edge arrow drawing control
    • Optional self-looped edges visualization support
    • Optional parallel edges visualization support between vertices
  • Easy support for user-defined external layout, overlap removal and edge routing algorithms
  • Configurable vertex and edge controls highlighting system based on behaviour mechanics
  • Easy vertex dragging support
  • Vertex and edge move, delete, add, mouse over animation support with the ability to create custom animations!
  • Universal graph Save/Load methods using YAXLib interfaces
  • Graph state saving and loading allows the capture and store in-memory visual and data graphs
  • Async algorithm computation support
  • Rich usability documentation

Additional Features:

  • Built in enchanced zoom control with minimap and zooming features   
    • Support for area selection of the vertices
    • Support for area zooming and smooth animations
  • Design-time visual preview for all controls
  • Library showcase example
