The NodeXL team would love to chat with the ICEDOTNET team to discuss possible integration!

Please contact Marc Smith at marc at connectedaction dot net.

Hi Marc,

I think it will be difficult to make NodeXL use Silverlight. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems NodeXL is strongly dependent to Microsoft Excel. Silverlight applications are hosted on a Http server and are usually not coupled with specific client resources (Win32 dll, .exe files, ...)

If your objective is to modify NodeXL to change you rendering system, you should try to use the WPF technology instead.

If you just want to integrate ICE into your project, the best starting point is to use the future WPF version of ICE. (I'm actually waiting for Orialmog to send me his new version)

If you have any other question, please feel free to ask them here.

Thank you again for your interest in our project,
