ReportingCloud is a Web API powered reporting platform to create MS Word compatible reports in the cloud using a REST web service.

The Web API also supports rendering document pages to a variety of image formats such as PNG, JPG, BMP and GIF with the highest available accuracy and quality.

Besides powerful reporting and conversion processes, the API method /v1/templates/thumbnails creates and returns images of document pages. It can be used for templates and resulting documents. If a document has been created using /v1/document/merge or /v1/document/convert, you can upload the document to your template storage in order to create the images using /v1/templates/thumbnails.

The following query parameters are available to specify the zoom factor, the format and to define the page range the images should be created for:

Key Value Type Value Description
templateName String The filename of the template in the template storage.
zoomFactor Integer An Integer value between 1 and 400 to set the percentage zoom factor of the created thumbnail images.
fromPage Integer An Integer value that specifies the first page.
toPage Integer An Integer value that specifies the last page.
imageFormat String A string value that defines the image format of the returned thumbnails. Possible values are PNG, JPG, GIF and BMP.

The following sample code shows how to create images using the ReportingCloud .NET wrapper:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Drawing;
using TXTextControl.ReportingCloud;
class RCSamples
public static void GetTemplateThumbnails(string templateName)
ReportingCloud rc = new ReportingCloud(
new Uri(""));
List<Image> lstThumbnails = rc.GetTemplateThumbnails(
templateName, 20, 1, 0, ImageFormat.PNG);
foreach (Image img in lstThumbnails)
string sImageFilename = Guid.NewGuid().ToString() + ".jpg";
img.Save(sImageFilename, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
Console.WriteLine("Image saved to: " + sImageFilename);
catch (Exception e)
Console.WriteLine("An error occurred: " + e.Message);
