How to Use the Built-In Data Visualizers

Built-in visualizers

Import VisualScript

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.
