The ExportAsFixedFormat method is similar to the DocumentExport method, except the Filename parameter is required and the optional FixedFormatExtClassPtr parameter is a pointer to a user-defined class that creates a custom PDF or XPS format.

If the active project shows a Network Diagram view, the following example creates an XPS document named TestProject.xps. When you open the file in the XPS Viewer application, the last page includes document properties and a legend that shows the PERT chart symbols.
