What is new in this release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Diagram for .NET 4.2.0 . Based on this new build, developers can now glue group shapes inside a container. Also, this release allows them to get and check for the presence of a master by name. Developers can now retrieve a master object using its name. The MasterCollection.GetMasterByName method searches all masters in the masters collection?s containing master. Previously, it was difficult to find the exact master ID, and then get the master. The new release of the Aspose.Diagram API has now made it very easy: just pass the exact master name. Developers can use either the master ID or name: the MasterCollection.GetMaster and MasterCollection.GetMasterByName methods give developers that option. In the previous version, we announced support for gluing shapes together by connection points. It works perfectly with ungroup shapes. However, there are many points in group shapes where it was not supported quite so well. We have now added group shape support. Developers can dynamically glue group shapes inside the container group shape. You can find details of this feature in the documentation help topic: Glue Group Shape inside a Container. Every Microsoft Visio document contains a masters collection, which refers to the various ?master shapes? that are used by it. Developers can now check the presence of a master object by its name using the MasterCollection.IsExist method. It checks that the title master exists and, if it does, returns true, otherwise false. Developers can use either the master ID or name: the MasterCollection.IsExist method supports both options. You can find details of this feature in the following help topic: Check Presence of a Master in a Visio Drawing. This release includes plenty of new and improved features as listed below

Overview: Aspose.Diagram for .NET

Aspose.Diagram is a class library for working with MS Visio files & is a pure .NET alternate for MS Visio Object Model.It enables developers to work with VSD & VDX files on ASP.NET web applications, web services & Windows applications. It makes use of the advanced functionality of Visio's services to manipulate Visio docs on a server. Developer can open files & manipulate the elements of the diagram, from lines and fills, to more complex elements, and then export to native Visio formats or XML.
