Back in January 2006, I made a presentation at the Microsoft Office Visio Conference in Home-Sweet-Home Seattle. Good company, good information, and good fun was had by all! You can download plenty of excellent content from that conference, including PowerPoint slides and recorded presentations. Get it here: Visio Conference web site.
In my presentation, Working With Visio an Xml, our friend, Dr. Xml, proudly made his PowerPoint debut and won the crowd over. The presentation summary was…
Enhance the flexibility of your Visio solutions with XML. In this session you will learn how to use the Visio XML file format, how to store custom XML data islands in SolutionXML, and how to stream Shape XML elements to your drawings using the DataObject.
Note: this article used to have a download link to the audio + slides. The technology for that was so old, it didn’t seem to work in modern browsers, so I’ve removed it.
