How can I see CGM Images in Oxygen Author ?

Post by sebastienlavandier » Thu Jul 26, 2012 10:33 am

Hello,
I want visualize an xml document with a CGM Image format in Oxygen Author.

I have find this :
http://oxygenxml.com/doc/ug-editor/task ... brary.html

I have do the procedure (put a .jar in the lib folder), and now, I can see the CGM Images.
But on the cgm images I have a message that indicate that is a "DEMO" and "experimental" !

How I can do otherwise ?
Maybe the Oxygen Author V14.0 support the cgm format ?
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hello,

Please note that The CGM support from Oxygen is experimental and this is already mentioned in the user manual (the link you found):
Oxygen XML provides experimental support for CGM 1.0 images.
Since it is an experimental support, some graphical elements might be missing from the rendered image.
What is not mentioned there (and it should be) is that a third party library (CGM Panel) is used for this support and that library is commercial. The zip file linked there points to a demo of the CGM Panel library that shows the "Demo" message across the image.
The official page for CGM Panel where the library can be purchased is:
http://www.bdaum.de/cgmpanel.htm

Apologies for any confusion regarding this support. I will make sure that the documentation is correctly updated to reflect its status.

Regards,
Adrian

Hi Sebastien,

From your experiments with that third party library, was it suitable for your needs?
Should we try to integrate that library by default with an Oxygen installation?
