Adding the Control to the View

  1. Find the Index.cshtml file in the Views -> Home folder. Replace the complete content with the following code:

    @using TXTextControl.Web.MVC.DocumentViewer
    @using System.Text
    <div style="width: 800px; height: 600px;">
    @Html.TXTextControl().DocumentViewer(settings => {
    settings.DocumentData = Convert.ToBase64String(
    Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("<strong>Sample Content</strong>"));
    settings.Dock = DocumentViewerSettings.DockStyle.Fill;
    var jsonAnnotations = '[[{"pen":{"type":"comment","objectWidth":32,"objectHeight":32},"user":"Unknown User","location":{"x":127,"y":50},"time":1658908087097,"comments":[{"comment":"Welcome to Text Control","user":"Unknown User","date":1658908100339,"id":"c8d818ce-ff1e-4c0c-b78c-6ba95a98dede","status":"none"}],"id":"feed80ff-1c94-4abf-9838-3e833faa4092","status":"Accepted"}]]';
    window.addEventListener("documentViewerLoaded", function () {
    view raw test.cshtml hosted with ❤ by GitHub

    This code adds the DocumentViewer to the view and loads a simple HTML string.
