PTV Visum - Extending Capabilities Using the COM Interface (TR-T0112)
Application-oriented programming in PTV Visum
Some of the customers would like to add their own applications to the given PTV Visum functionality or embed PTV Visum in enterprise workflows. Using the COM interface and a considerable object library giving access to almost any functionality of Visum, you have nearly unlimited possibilities for model processing on behalf of your specific purposes. This course will impart the basic knowledge of the COM model of PTV Visum. Course participants will learn how to control PTV Visum from external applications, run repeated processes automatically and how to create and implement simple applications in PTV Visum. The examples and exercises will use Python as the scripting language. A short recapitulation of Python language constructs is given.
The course addresses to experienced users with basic programming knowledge in engineering firms or transport associations who would like to improve the automation of certain processes to work more efficiently or develop their own specific functional PTV Visum extensions.
You successfully participated in our basic course "PTV Visum - Introduction to Macroscopic Network Modelling" (TR-T0101) or have similar experience with PTV Visum.
Basic programming knowledge of any programming language is required. The course will be given with examples in Python.
- Introduction to the COM model
- Fields of application for your own COM programs
