Suggestions and Requests / Additional image type requested
« on: July 10, 2003, 05:30:10 pm »
I'd like to request two additional image types in the documentation export:

- SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/

SVG is a language for describing two-dimensional graphics in XML. SVG allows for three types of graphic objects: vector graphic shapes (e.g., paths consisting of straight lines and curves), images and text. Graphical objects can be grouped, styled, transformed and composited into previously rendered objects. Text can be in any XML namespace suitable to the appplication, which enhances searchability and accessibility of the SVG graphics. The feature set includes nested transformations, clipping paths, alpha masks, filter effects, template objects and extensibility.

And... (oh yes, horror of horrors):

- VML (Vector Markup Language)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/vml/

Vector Markup Language (VML) is an XML-based exchange, editing, and delivery format for high-quality vector graphics on the Web that meets the needs of both productivity users and graphic design professionals. XML is an emerging simple, flexible, and open text-based language that complements HTML. (See the XML section of the MSDN Library for detailed information on XML.)

Why both?

Well, Microsoft Internet Explorer seems to be making absolutely NO progress in supporting SVG natively inside the body of an XHTML document.  On the other hand it does display VML without any plug-ins.  SVG is nice for non-Microsoft browsers & platforms - while VML is nice for IE (and yes, Microsoft is still using it extensively internally - the betas for Office 2003, SharePoint 2003 import many VML namespaces...)

General Board / Re: Question - .NET framework classes

The exact error reads:

"This setup requires the .NET Framework version 1.1.4322.  Please install the .NET Framework and run this setup again.  The .NET Framework can be obtained from the web.  Would you like to do this now?"
Yes or No.

No exits, Yes takes me to:

"This Page Has Moved

We apologize for the inconvenience, but The URL you are trying to reach, http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads.default.asp?url=/downloads/sample.asp?url=/msdn-files/027/002/055/msdncompositedoc.xml, has been moved from this location. You will be redirected to the new location in 5 seconds. Please update any bookmarks.
Thanks, The MSDN Team."

So, that's why I was inclined to think it was not the RTM version.

This looks good, but one question - did you install/build the setup program & utility with the .NET Framework 1.1 release, or the beta?

I've just tried installing 1.1 RTM available online, and still get an error message when I attempt to install your MSI.

General Board / Re: RTF and Open Office

When you generate RTF documentation from within EA, you have the choice of setting the image type to:

-EMF
-WMF
-GIF
-JPG
-PNG
-Bitmap

First step, I would try both EMF, or WMF first - as they are scalable.

Next, my question to you, if one or the other still does not work, are ANY of these types showing up in your RTF document in OpenOffice?  Do any show up in Word?

I a similar problem here (and we ALL use Word), I would perform a documentation export, and it would appear correct on my machine - I'd email the RTF to my team - no images...  :'(

Well, there is a checkbox option - lower right-hand corner of the settings dialog, titled: "Embed Diagrams in Document".  I had it off  ;D, and of course, when I emailed the RTF, I forgot the individual files.

That fixed my problem, however I do not know how OpenOffice would handle that setting, you have to try it yourself.

Do people who purchased 1 (~May 03), get the upgrade free, or do we pay an upgrade price?

General Board / Re: UML Patterns downloadable?
« on: July 10, 2003, 05:08:30 pm »
Here's a possibility, but I don't know how well it would work.

Rather than manually re-create all the patterns from scratch, find a downloadable set from somehwere, and use the reverse engineering tools in EA to re-generate the class interfaces...

Design patterns in C#:

(I leave it to you to find your own language of choice...)

(hmmm, PS.  If anyone wants to buy the domain; extremepatterns.com - my wife and I own it - it never quite evolved into the "software development pattern repository" I envisioned, and my wife didn't want to use it for her "computerized sewing/embroidery machine" patterns - I'm open to offers....)
