This article summarizes my experience on translating office add-ins to multiple language. It is not an official guide, but just how you could do it. It assumes you have an office extension (VSTO, desktop) in a single language, and want to provide it in some other languages for users in other countries. GitHub demo repository: https://github.com/nbelyh/VstoMultiLanguageDemo For generic information on localization on application localization in .NET, please refer the official Microsoft documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/resources/index The steps I suggest:
A new feature that allows you to play with scripting for the new Visio Online with comfort. Live shape updates, autocomplete, parameter info right out of the box.
The SVG publishing plugin Visio API documentation has been added!
– Exporting Visio diagrams to disk, sharepoint, github
– Getting / Setting any export parameters (paths, options, authorizations, etc)
The import/export VBA extension supports not only the UI (button-click), but also command line interface! It was not initially documented (now it is), but the tool includes command-line utility as well, so that one can use it with powershell script or a batch file (for batch processing of files), or in any other automated way. For this functionality MSI (full) version is required: Below are some examples of what can be done using command line.
A few months ago I released a visual studio extension, that provides autocomplete if you edit office ribbon files. The extension is open source, and published on GitHub. By now, it proved to be more of less functional and even some issues with Office 2016 icons were fixed thanks to the user feedback! 🙂 What it can do for you – it can assist you if you edit the XML files to define interface for your extensions in the Visual Studio editor. The code is based on famous glyphfriend extension (if you don’t use it yet – you should start, it’s great). Initially …
With HTML export, you can specify any information to show on popup (bootstrap popover) Firs, simple demo (rectangle): Live sample: https://cdn.rawgit.com/nbelyh/svgpublishdemo/fa70891f/SimplePopover.html Souce: This is just stock popover. The code just defines a standard bootstrap popover, but for a Visio shape (#shape1). The result might not look that impressive, but I hope it looks clear. Now let’s go for something more advanced. Lets take stock diagram and show in the popover info about the relevant computer models from the HP website. Click the image to open it live (again, hosted on GitHub)
This post briefly explains how to bind Visio diagram, exported as HTML to some external live web-service. It’s based on the HTML/SVG export extension. If you want the exported diagram to be connected to some live data, you’ll need to connect to some live service (in this example, we consider a REST service). In the following posts, I’ll discuss binding a diagram to a SharePoint list using JSOM / REST. So, let’s take map of Europe and show temperature by coloring countries, with colder colors indicating colder temperature! You can check the result in DEMO section (click the picture to navigate): Here is …
