The type arguments for method ToAdjacencyGraph error

Aug 27, 2009 at 4:30 PM

Hello, I am trying to create my first graph with QuickGraph using the following example code:

Here is the code-behind for an C# 3.5 windows form:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using QuickGraph;
using QuickGraph.Algorithms;

namespace TestQuickGraph
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            var edges = new Edge<int>[] { new Edge<int>(1, 2), new Edge<int>(0, 1) };
            var graph = edges.ToAdjacencyGraph(edges); //error is here



I cannot get past this point, I receive an error:

Error    1    The type arguments for method 'QuickGraph.GraphExtensions.ToAdjacencyGraph<TVertex,TEdge>(System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<TVertex>, System.Func<TVertex,System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<TEdge>>)'

cannot be inferred from the usage. Try specifying the type arguments explicitly.


Can anyone help me resolve this error? It must be something simple I am doing wrong...


Thanks Before Hand,

Looks like C# does not infer the generic type arguments. I've updated the docs, try


            var edges = new SEdge<int>[] { new SEdge<int>(1,2), new SEdge<int>(0,1) };
            var graph = edges.ToAdjacencyGraph<int, SEdge<int>>();

Thanks that worked great! :)  By the way I think you added an extra field in the doc update:

... SEdge<int>>(edges);

My next question if you dont mind, now that I have this graph, what is the easiest way to add vertices, edges and then have the graph display on a windows form.  If you have a sample code, I would gladly appreciate it.


Thanks Again,

AdjacencyGraph has methods like 'AddVertex', 'AddEdge', 'AddVertexRange', 'AddEdgeRange', etc... QuickGraph does not provide any graph viewer, other project provide such functionality (i.e. MsAgl or Graph#).

Thanks, I seem to be having a problem finding Graph#.  Do you have their website?

hi look for graphSharp :)

have a nice day
