How to activate auto-refresh the visio drawing

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


we are using the Visio Services in Sharepoint. I have condected my Visio VDW File with the data (from SQL, from SP Site etc.) If I click on the file I see thatauto refresh is desabled and I can see the updated data only if I click refresh, or refresh always, refresh for this session.

If I open it again it's the same history about the update. How can I activate auto-refresh when I open the vdw-drawing?

P.S. Sorry what I post the topic in the false forum, I did not find the visio in sharepoint.

thanks in advance

2010 Visio Services Data Auto Refresh Issue


I have published vdw diagram in Sharepoint 2010 Shared Documents. The diagram data is linked to SQL database.

When I view the diagram in the browser, unless I click dedicated "Refresh" button on the top left at the sharepoint page, data is not updating.

I have changed all the SP 2010 Global settings to minimal value = 0 (as per previous post called 2010 Visio Services Data Refresh Issue).

Still you need to click dedicated "Refresh" button on the top left at the sharepoint page in order to see updated data.

In the article called "Visio Services for SharePoint 2010" is stated that new Visio service supports AUTOMATIC REFRESH.

Am I missing something? Is it possible to have a visio diagram with AUTOMATIC REFRESH published in SharePoint 2010?

I can do some workarounds like publishing in web parts page that has auto pooling, but my understanding was that the Visio diagram refresh is event based on data change only - means if data do not change 10 minutes there will be no calls?



Office 2003: Host an Interactive Visio Drawing Surface in .NET Custom Clients


Microsoft Office Visio 2003 introduces a new drawing component that allows you to embed an interactive drawing surface into your application's user interface. You can drive the Visio drawing component from events in your host application or with data from a Web Service and an ADO.NET data adapter. The Visio drawing component supports the rich Visio application programming model, giving you control over how graphics are used and displayed on the drawing surface. This article explains how to embed the Visio drawing component into a C#-based Windows Forms client app that retrieves data from the Fabrikam 2.0 Web Service.

Hello..  I created a website in which I have an update panel being updated via a timer.  This works fine when there's only a few people online.

But now, during live testing, this bogs down the server because we have 30-60 people hitting the website and this page is being updated via the server.

Is there a way to have the page auto-update itself via javascript?  And how would I go about doing this so only a certain panel is updated instead of the full screen.


Visio Web Drawing Not Working

Hello   I have created a Visio 2010 Drawing, and saved it as a web drawing to my sharepoint 2010 server. Visio 2010 - Version: 14.0.4760.1000 (32-bit) SharePoint 2010 - Version 14.0.4763.1000 (64-bit) When i create a page and add a visio web access webpart and then open my web drawing i get an error which reads: 'The Server failed to process the request' The Event Viewer shows the following error: Failed to get Vector Diagram for visio file page Exception : The server was unable to process the request due to an internal error. For more information about the error, either turn on IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults (either from ServiceBehaviorAttribute or from the <serviceDebug> configuration behavior) on the server in order to send the exception information back to the client, or turn on tracing as per the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SDK documentation and inspect the server trace logs. I have tried google, bing and technet but cant find an answer. I have a secure store target spplication id set up and credentials set and have added that information to the visio graphic service global settings. Any ideas what i can do to fix this issue?

Visio service data refresh help


I have created Visio 2010 diagram hwich gets the data from SQL 2008 server. vsd diagram works fine on the client, data is refreshed when I click Refresh from Visio 2010.

I have published it as vwd using "Share" option of Visio 2010 on SharePoint 2010 server in Shared Documents site library. It opens fine in browser, you see the diagram, but data is not refreshing, although I force it with dedicated SharePoint Refresh button on the top of the page. No errors, just the data is not updating.

SQL 2008 server is actually on the same Windows 2008 server where the SharePoint 2010 server is. The question is how it connects and works fine from the client PC but cant refresh the data on the server. I am admin on all boxes.

Do I need to publish ODC file on the SharePoint 2010 server too ?

Any help is appreciated.

Auto Refresh Issues in BIDS


I am having 2 issues in SSRS 2008 R2 (Version 10.50.1600.1)

1. If I preview a report that has the auto-refresh enabled, when I stop previewing the report, the query continues to be executed for the auto-refresh.  This continues until I close the report.

2. If I don't close the report, and let it continue to auto-refresh, eventually BIDS will crash, either giving me errors about WindowID invalid, or just disappear altogether.


Can anyone else reproduce this or have you experienced it?

To reproduce, create a report, put a value in the auto-refresh (i use 30 seconds), open profiler, and then preview the report in BIDS.  Wait for an auto-refresh to occur, and then go back to design mode in BIDS. Now watch profiler. You should see your dataset query executed at the auto-refresh interval.

keep getting this error message on trying to refresh data

"Viso services was unable to refresh external data connections in this web drawing because of changes in teh structure od an underlying data source. one or more columns in this data source have been deleted after this web drawing was last saved."

The underlying data source has not been changed and I have tried re-creating the visio web drawing from scratch - always this error!
