Create VSSM Documents via Python
Native and high performance VSSM (Portable Document Format) creation programmatically using Python library.
Generating VSSM file dynamically within running application is easy. In order to create VSSM documents from scratch without requiring MS Office, we’ll use
API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use conversion API for Python platform. You can download its latest version directly from
How to Create VSSM via Python
It is easy for the developers to create, load, modify and convert VSSM (Portable Document Format) within running different reporting applications for data processing in just a few lines of code.
- Include the namespace in your class file
- Create Diagram class instance.
- Access the first page of the diagram.
- Add text in the page.
- Use save method to save the diagram as VSSM file.
Aspose.Diagram for Python is platform-independent API and can be used on any platform (Windows, Linux and MacOS), just make sure that system have Python 3.6 or higher.
- Install Aspose.Diagram for Python from pypi, use command as:
$ pip install aspose-diagram-python.
Create Html Python Conversion Source Code
from aspose.diagram import * // Create Diagram class instance. diagram = Diagram(); // Access the first page of the diagram. page = diagram.Pages; // Add Text shape. shape = page.addText(1, 1, 1, 1, "Test text", "Calibri", "#a5a5a5", 0.25); // Save the Diagram as .vssm file. diagram.save("out.vssm",SaveFileFormat.VSSM);
VSSM What is VSSM File Format
Files with .VSSM extension are Microsoft Visio Stencil files that support provide support for macros. A VSSM file when opened allows to run the macros to achieve desired formatting and placement of shapes in a diagram. In general, Microsoft Visio is drawing software that allows to create files that can contain and represent user defined information in different shapes. The most common of these include, but not limited to, UML diagrams, flow charts, visual objects, information flow, organizational charts, software diagrams, network layout, database models, objects mapping and other similar information. Files generated using Visio can also be converted to different file formats such as PNG, BMP, PDF and others.Read More
