To learn more about Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET and explore the basic requirements and features of the library, check out the following Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET Documentation pages for other use cases.

Example of converting MPP project to PDF

Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET is a Project manipulation API that lets you convert any existing project to PDF document. The process of converting to PDF can be flexibly customized.

Below code snippet follows these steps:

  1. Open existing project.
  2. Save to PDF.
import aspose.tasks as tsk

# Open existing project
prj = tsk.Project("HelloProject.mpp")
# Save to PDF
prj.save("output.pdf", tsk.saving.SaveFileFormat.PDF)

Example of converting project to images

Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET supports the feature to convert projects to different image formats. To accomplish this, the ImageSaveOptions class has been introduced. Instantiate an object of ImageSaveOptions and pass it as a second argument to the Project.save(..) method.

Below code snippet follows these steps:

  1. Create an object of the Project class.
  2. Create ImageSaveOptions object with needed settings.
  3. Call the Project.save() method and pass options instance to it to convert to JPEG.
import aspose.tasks as tsk

# load file
prj = tsk.Project("HelloProject.mpp")
# create ImageSaveOptions with desired format
options = tsk.saving.ImageSaveOptions(tsk.saving.SaveFileFormat.JPEG)
# configure output options
options.horizontal_resolution = 96.0
options.vertical_resolution = 96.0
options.jpeg_quality = 70
# render data to image format
prj.save("output.jpg", options)

Create Project file from scratch in Python

In the next code snippet, we are creating a Project document from scratch containing few tasks. After installing Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET in your environment, you can execute below code sample to see how Aspose.Tasks API works.

Below code snippet follows these steps:

  1. Instantiate a Project object.
  2. Add task to the project.
  3. Setup task attributes (start, duration etc.).
  4. Save created project.

The following code snippet is a kind of simple program to exhibit how Aspose.Tasks for Python via .NET API works with Project items:

import aspose.tasks as tsk
from datetime import *

# Instantiate a Project object
prj = tsk.Project()
# Add task to the project
task1 = prj.root_task.children.add("Task 1")
# Setup task attributes
task1.start = datetime(2023, 1, 15)
task1.duration = prj.get_duration(1.0, tsk.TimeUnitType.DAY)
# Add another task
task2 = prj.root_task.children.add("Task 2")
task2.start = datetime(2023, 1, 16)
task2.duration = prj.get_duration(2.0, tsk.TimeUnitType.DAY)
# Save created project
prj.save("HelloProject.mpp")
