Interactive WebPage
« on: July 20, 2012, 02:44:02 PM »
I am trying to make my network map I've designed in visio to be interactive when it is exported to htm or html. In visio I have a button that can be double clicked and it changes the map around. But when I try and double click after saving it as a webpage it does not work. Is there any way around this because I lose a lot of the interactive functionality without being able to trigger events in some way. Also I've only been using this software for about a week so i'm pretty new to it but so far I've been able to create my own shapes that have a switch that can minipulate the map. Also I tried Visio Viewer and that didn't work either. Thanks. :)

Oh and this is for 2010 or 2007. 2003 as well if I have to go that far back but I'd rather not.

I think this is where you need the export to Silverlight (XAML). John Goldsmith has a blog article about it here:
http://visualsignals.typepad.co.uk/vislog/2009/08/visio-2010-save-as-silverlight.html

I'm using Visio 2010 Premium but I can't find any of this stuff in the menus so I can't help any further. I have no Share option on the File menu, nor is there any VML or XAML save as option. Shrug.

I"ll check the link in a sec but is there any way to actually get visio to be interactive in the manner that i'm speaking about once the file is in htm format?

Once the file is in HTML format it ceases to be anything to do with Visio.
