If you need to import SVG into VG.net, this converter allows you to drag an svg file from the file explorer and drop it onto a VG.net Picture. If the SVG files is simple enough, it will be converted into VG.net elements and added to your Picture.
The binary installers are for full versions of VG.net, not evaluation or Lite versions:
VG.net SVG Importer for version 5.3.9912 (Visual Studio 2008)
VG.net SVG Importer for version 6.3.9915 (Visual Studio 2010)
Illustrator has an export option that will eliminate adobe-specific svg extensions. Be sure to use this option, and delete the namespace section.
There are many things still to do with the importer:
- More stroke properties
- Radial gradients
- Other things...
VG.net SVG Importer Source Code (Visual Studio 2005)
VG.net SVG Importer Source Code (Visual Studio 2008)
VG.net SVG Importer Source Code (Visual Studio 2010)
The source code includes a test application you can use to debug the importer.
It would probably take at least 1 week of work to get good SVG support, for the things that are equivalent in VG.net. If you need better support for something specific, please ask us about consulting.
Note: The binaries and source code in the links above are provided AS IS with no warranties whatsoever.
Note: For VG.net versions 4.1a and 5.1a (intial release), the Visual Studio integration for the SVG plug-in was broken. These problems were fixed in subsequent releases.
