to begin with: Thank you for GraphX! I used it already for two mini tools and it just works so fine!!!

Now, I am about to create a third tool. In that tool, some graph hierarchy should be included. There are about 10 graphs with about 100 vertices each.

The goal is to draw a top level graph with that 10 vertices, 1 for each graph.

Then, I want to provide 2 options:

(Black boxes = zoomcontrols)

1. Image:

The user should be able to click on 2 of that 10 vertices. In a second and third zoomcontrol (possibly contained by 2 vertices in an underlying zoomcontrol... would be a graph in a vertex then), the two graphs are shown next to eachother and the edges which exist between that 2 graphs are shown. The new zoomcontrols also can be 1 instead of 2, but the clear seperation somehow has to be there (a line would be totaly awesome).

2. and 3. Image:

The user should be able to click on a vertex or two of them and these vertices are replaced by their containing graphs.

Are these things possible with GraphX? What are the steps you would recommend? Are there any things already implemented? Which things do I need to implement by myself at a minimum?

... and a 1000 more questions...
