We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for Java 6.6.0 . This new version adds features and provides the most notable and useful new APIs for application developers. It incorporates a way to access and modify code modules in the VBA project of Visio, read or convert macro-enabled Visio diagrams. Developers may also convert macro-enabled drawings to macro-free drawings and vice versa. Besides this, developers can manipulate OLE objects in the Visio diagram. We recommend our clients to use Aspose powerful Java APIs directly in their Maven Projects with simple configurations. OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) is a technology that allows applications to share data and functionality easily in a quick way. OLE allows an application to interact with another one without knowing, in advance, about the other application. Aspose.Diagram API gives developers a mechanism to programmatically retrieve OLE objects from a Visio, and then change it with its modified version. Microsoft Office Visio has three main file types named as drawing (VSDX), stencil (VSSX) and template (VSTX). It also offers macro-enabled formats (VSDM, VSSM and VSTM) for each file type. Using Aspose.Diagram API, it is very easy for developers to transform their macro-enable diagrams to macro-free diagrams or vice versa. However, please note, only the macro-enabled files (VSDM, VSSM, VSTM) can store VBA macros. The VBA (Visual Basic Application) programs can be saved in the Microsoft Office Visio diagrams and VBA modules are the home for custom functions and sub procedures. Users may add multiple procedures in a single module manually. Using Aspose.Diagram API, developers can access and modify the source code of the whole module in the VBA project. Users may embed documents on a Visio diagram, displayed as icons. Aspose.Diagram API allows developers to save these icons in the local storage. This release includes several enhanced features and bug fixes as listed below
- Add support to import the macro enabled Drawing (.VSDM).
- Add support to import the macro enabled template (.VSTM).
- Add support to import the macro enabled stencil (.VSSM).
- Diagram exception occurred while loading a VSDX file.
Newly added documentation pages and articles
Some new tips and articles have now been added into Aspose.Diagram for Java documentation that may guide you briefly how to use Aspose.Diagram for performing different tasks like the followings.
Aspose.Diagram is a class library for working with MS Visio files & is a pure Java alternate for MS Visio Object Model. It is a standalone Visio Java library and does not depend on Microsoft Office Visio. It enables developers to work with VSD & VDX files and they can open files & Add & manipulate the elements of the diagram, export Visio files to PDF, XML, HTML, images format, SVG & several other formats, Rotate a shape, Add a hyperlink to a Visio shape, protect diagram shape and many more. Aspose.Diagram can be used with any kind of application, whether it’s a Web Application or a Windows Desktop Application.
