Compound Trees

Nov 22, 2010 at 1:33 PM

Hi there,

i've just spotted the compound FPD layout algorithm which looks nice, however i was disappointed not to find a compound tree - has anyone implemented one?

Looking at the FDP code it looks like a far bigger task than i'd have thought to implement a layout algorithm

Or is there some way of mocking up a similar effect (e.g. using a data template in wpf which adds child zoom/graph components)?

any advice appreciated

just a quick note on a hack

i've been able to get a compound tree working by setting the  DataTemplate for a vertex to contain another graph component. The trick to getting it to work is not to nest Zoom controls as there is a bug in that control which prevents it working. and also to ensure that the first graph is fully loaded and displayed before you add inner graphs for each of its vertex, other than this it all works :)
