Connected Node Diagram

 A connected node diagram is used to show the relationships between different entities. For the example below i have chosen to visually explore the relationships between users in terms of the number of messages that they have sent to each other.


You'll notice the correct allocation of two different field entries for the Node To and Node From so it is easy to use from the UI perspective. Some other nice features of this visualisation include:


  • Highlight of relationships connected to node that you are hovering over
  • Responsive scaling
  • Color customisation for links and nodes
  • Change the highlight color
  • Data labels support for both nodes and links
  • Change the force to which nodes repel each other
  • Change the font size on the different labels


I've noticed a lot of videos with people just dragging fields into a single field input. The secret sauce to getting what i did done was using a caegorical mapping for the dataview.

I'd like to try your custom visual but the link you've provided points just to general repository and I can't find it there. Could you please post current link?

Thank you

I was able to find it, but when copy the content of NodeLink.ts into dev tools in PowerBI portal, I get a compilation error. That "No 'export capabilities: VisualCapabilities' found inside the class NodeLink"

Could you please help me how to fix it?
