Visual Basic

The example below shows how to use Visual Basic code to generate an output RTF file using a PXF file and an input XML file. Ensure that StyleVision Server is installed and licensed and that it is available as a COM server object. Registration as a COM server object usually takes place during installation of StyleVision Server. To check if registration was successful, see About the COM Interface.

 

Option Explicit On

 

Module Program

 

  Sub Main()

 

      'Create a StyleVision Server object

      Dim objSVS As Altova.StyleVisionServer.Server = New Altova.StyleVisionServer.Server

 

      'Set a working directory - used for output and for intermediate files

      objSVS.WorkingDirectory = "C:\temp"

 

      'Default path to the StyleVision Server executable is the installation path (same dir with the StyleVisionServer.dll)

      'In case you moved the binaries on the disk, you need to explicitly set the path to the .exe file

      'objSVS.ServerPath = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Altova\StyleVisionServer2019\bin\StyleVisionServer.exe"

 

      'Prepare the name of the working XML

      objSVS.InputXML = "ExpReport.xml"

 

      'Add output paths (absolute or relative to WorkingDirectory) for all formats that should be generated

      objSVS.OutputRTF = "ExpReport.rtf"

 

      'Prepare the parameters, if your design uses parameters

      'Call objSVS.AddParameter( "testparam1", "value 1" )

 

      ' Run the transformation; the output will be stored at C:\temp\ExpReport.rtf

      ' NOTE Please adapt the path to the input file in order to run the sample

      If (objSVS.Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Altova\StyleVisionServer2019\etc\Examples\ExpReport.pxf")) Then

          System.Console.WriteLine("Success - finished execution")

      Else

          System.Console.WriteLine(objSVS.LastExecutionMessage)

      End If

 

  End Sub

 

End Module
