I am testing Aspose.Tasks but I need it to be able to open a .mpp file and populate it with tasks. I have attached a project which contains an automation routine which opens a file, populates it with data and saves.
I want to do the same with Aspose.Tasks to avoid using automation but the code , which runs, does not add any Tasks! I have a trial license, so it does allow me to open and save the files. It just refuses to show them.
I think it is because I need to set Text1, Text2 and some custom flags (Flags 1 -4). I have spents hours looking for a way to do this with Aspose but have drawn a blank.
Is what I am trying to do, even possible with Aspose?
Any help appreciated.
I have seen from another post that Aspose.Tasks doesn't allow this at the moment - something about being ready in 2011Q2 - which is a shame.
I have amended my project to open a mpp file and save as .xml - however now the tasks appear but not correctly and it does not remember the timescale of the original mpp or any of the bar styles etc.
Is this normal behaviour - an example of how to create what I can do using automation using Aspose.Tasks in .xml or (ideally .mpp) would be helpful - otherwise I will have to stick with automation and all its problems.
