I've been searching in the community on how to export images from spotfire via Ironpython. It seems that everyone is talking about the exporting to a power point file. In my project Word is more convenient! Is it possible to write a script that export the viusalizations from spotfire to a word template Please share your ideas in this matter! Thank you.

There is no direct API available in Spotfire to export an image to Word.

One workaround is may be to export the image to a folder and then use the Microsoft API for Word document (if new) to create a new file and add these images.

Below is a sample script on how to export images

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import *

from System.Drawing import Size

from System.Threading import CancellationToken

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import RenderResultSettings










#viz is a script parameter referencing the visualization to be exported





#Note - "Execute in transaction" checkbox is unchecked before running the script

The script I shared will export the visualization as an Image this is all part of the Spotfire API. but there is no Spotfire API to create a word document. So once images are exported , I was suggesting for you to check if there is any API avaialble from Microsoft which allows to create a word document and providing the images from Spotfire.Then you can add also those into the IronPython script before and test.

Something like this may be,https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.office.interop.word.applicationclassview=word-pia
