Hi all,
with Graham Wideman's permission I've rebuilt his Visio interface demo originally for Delphi, now rebuilt for Lazarus/Free Pascal.
I've included an executable that should work with any 32-bit version of Visio (how far back I don't know, perhaps someone with older versions can try it out - I've already tested it with Visio 2003/2007 and 2010 - they all work fine). Perhaps someone can try it out with 32-bit Visio 2013 as well.
All the required source files are included as well, all you need to rebuild the code is to download and install Lazarus from http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/

The rebuilt code is at http://www.paulherber.co.uk/articles/visio-articles/visio-dev-with-lazarus-graham-widemans-code/

Hi Paul,

that's very cool. I wanted to look at that interface a long time, but privatly (where I do Visio as a hobby) I have no Delphi and no Visual Studio (only the express versions). At work, where I do plenty with Delphi, there's no Visio. So maybe it's time for me to look into Lazarus and try out your interface. Thank you!


On the linked site there is a typo: desogned instead of designed.

It's Graham's code that is cool. Thanks for the heads-up with the typo. Now fixed.
