SmartDraw can generate a diagram automatically from a data source using built-in data visualizers.
You can also create your own custom data visualizer using SmartDraw's Open API and SDK.
Explore the existing built-in data visualizers below.
All the built-in visualizers work by turning data into VisualScript markup. SmartDraw has an Open API and SDK that lets any developer write code that generates VisualScript.
Once you have a script that generates VisualScript, you can import the generated VisualScript into SmartDraw to create a diagram.
To do so, click on the Plus (+) icon to switch the SmartPanel to the Insert Content view. Then choose VisualScript under Add Data Visualizer.
