Creating Diagrams

In order to create new diagrams do I need to provide a VSS file containing the shapes. This would mean then that I need MS Visio also?

Can I update properties on Visio shapes such as Columns on an Database View shape?

If I deployed an application that uses Aspose.Diagram would the deployed machine need to have a Visio license if I was to deploy a VSS file too?

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in our Aspose.Diagram for .NET product.

Aspose.Diagram for .NET is a single .NET assembly. You can use Aspose.Diagram for .NET in WinForms applications and all the examples in the documentation should work with any Web or WinForms application. Aspose.Diagram for .NET online documentation is also available at http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/diagramnet/Home

Once you create, update or manipulate a diagram, you can save it to VDX, VTX, VSX, Image, XPS, SWT, PDF or HTML formats. For details, please see product features on this page.

Please go through complete Aspose.Diagram documentation specially programmers guide http://www.aspose.com/docs/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=10846801 for more details on how to create new diagrams from templates, add shapes or connectors, read existing diagrams, manipulate new or existing diagrams and save diagrams to different formats. You can also download working examples from the page below.

Thanks for your response. I did find out some of my original questions but then changed them and reposted new ones about the time you reponded, sorry.

I have tried the examples for WinForms using VS2010. It didn't compile so I gave up trawling through code. Here are the error messages:

Error 1 Cannot implicitly convert type 'int' to 'Aspose.Diagram.Master'
Error 2 Cannot implicitly convert type 'int' to 'Aspose.Diagram.StyleSheet'

Since I now know a little more than I did I will look through the code and find where the Visio object properties are updated. If you read my updated questions, it pertains to this particular topic.

Thanks

Phil
