This documentation contains the following information:

  • DatadiagramML schema

    A full view of the DatadiagramML schema structure. You can click any element to go directly to its reference topic.

  • A DatadiagramML overview

    An overview of DatadiagramML that includes information about the DatadiagramML schema, inheritance, working with sheets and formulas, working with geometry, working with text, loading XML files created outside of Visio, round-tripping XML data, embedding custom XML data, units of measure, and errors and warning messages.

    In previously published materials, including the Microsoft Office Visio 2003 SDK, the XML schema that is explained in this document was referred to as "XML for Visio." From now on, the schema is called DatadiagramML.

    The examples in the overview topics for this reference show values for attributes in single quotation marks (') because Visio writes out this data by using single quotation marks. You can, however, enter attribute values in DatadiagramML files by using either double or single quotation marks. The examples provided in the reference topics show values for attributes in double quotation marks (").
  • DatadiagramML element reference

    Reference topics that provide details on all of the elements in the DatadiagramML schema. Each topic includes information on syntax, default units for elements that represent cells, attributes, and parent and child elements.
