Replacing MS Office Automation in applications is one of the most typical use cases for document APIs such as TX Text Control. But TX Text Control is not just another "file format API" - it gives you all you need to automate your MS Word compatible documents and reports.
Using file format APIs such as the Office Open XML SDK or others is good for document conversion or simple creation processes. But it doesn't give you the full universal, comprehensive options to integrate document editing into your .NET based applications.
Using TX Text Control you can automate, edit and create documents using UI and non-UI components. The following list shows typical uses and features:
|WYSIWYG Document Editing (without using MS Word)|
|Reporting and Mail Merge|
|MS Word MergeField, FormField and ContentControl support|
|PDF Engine (create and import Adobe PDF documents)|
|TX Text Control WordsTM - Template Designer*|
|Document Conversion (RTF, DOC, DOCX, PDF, HTML, XML)|
|Document File API|
|Document Rendering Engine (create images from pages)|
|Full Barcode Integration|
|Most Powerful Spell Checking Engine|
|2D and 3D Charting Support|
|* HTML5 Web version will be released in quarter 3 2014. Read more|
All of these features are fully integrated and can be implemented with just a few lines of code. MS Word compatible Mail Merge and Reporting functionality is natively supported by TX Text Control that gives you access to flow type layout reporting features in an easy-to-use and reusable component.
