Charlotte, NC, United States (November 20, 2013) - The software component vendor Text Control recently released version X10 of the word processing component family TX Text Control.
TX Text Control X10 supports right-to-left text rendering for languages such as Arabic or Hebrew and is ready for markets in middle east. Each line in a document can be bi-directional, which means, that it can contain text parts written from left-to-right and text parts written from right-to-left. The optional spell checking component TX Spell .NET available in version 4.0 also fully supports right-to-left dictionaries.
The word processing component, available for Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET and ActiveX, also supports multi-lingual hyphenation. The hyphenation works automatically based on new language regions in TX Text Control. Regions of a document such as a characater, a word or complete paragraphs can be associated with a specific language. This is done automatically when the user switches the input keyboard, it can be set programmatically or using a new dialog box.
TX Text Control improved the overall creation and rendering performance significantly. All components are fully multithreading compatible which makes document batch creation drastically faster.
The 20th version of TX Text Control has been updated with many new reporting and mail merge features that can be used in all supported .NET platforms. The direct use of enumerable business objects as a data source to merge templates is one of the most commonly requested features of TX Text Control Reporting. The reporting engine now supports string formatters for merge fields and image placeholder merging.
At the same time, TX Barcode 3.0 has been released with 9 new industry standard 1D and 2D barcode types, including commonly used types such as MaxiCode, PDF417 and MicroPDF.
Aside from all the new features and improvements, the developers of Text Control have invested a lot of development time into improvements to their template designer TX Text Control Words. TX Text Control Words is used to create the basis of a reporting process: The template. This MS Word compatible template is merged with data by the TX Text Control reporting engine MailMerge as part of a Windows Forms, WPF or ASP.NET application.
