DGML testing

I have downloaded the latest source.

I run this code:

DataSet ds = _repository.GetSchemaDataSet(_tableNames);
var g = ds.ToGraph();           

My question (I will blog about this, I promise!):

How do I get Label tags in the generated dgml? (Or are we just not there yet)...

Thanks for a wonderful library.

There are different 'ToDirectedGraphML' overloads that allow to pass a delegate that can modify the Node element. From there, you can set the Label property.

Thanks, it got this to work - will complete my dataset population and then do some blogging.

        internal void GenerateSchemaGraph()
            var formatNode = new Action<DataTable, DirectedGraphNode>(Generator.FormatNode);
            var formatLink = new Action<DataRelationEdge, DirectedGraphLink>(Generator.FormatLink);

            DataSet ds = _repository.GetSchemaDataSet(_tableNames);
            var g = ds.ToGraph();
            g.ToDirectedGraphML(AlgorithmExtensions.GetVertexIdentity(g), AlgorithmExtensions.GetEdgeIdentity(g), formatNode, formatLink).WriteXml("test.xml");

If you write to a test.dgml file, you can simply double-click on it and it will open in VS2010 magically.
