Charlotte, NC, United States (April 14, 2014) - The software component vendor Text Control on Monday announced its cross-platform, cross-browser strategy to create reporting templates on the Web.

Bjoern Meyer, President of Text Control in the United States, during the roadmap unveiling at the developer conference DevIntersection in Orlando, Florida, stated:

Our new HTML5 rendering technology is a radical change in the way documents will be edited in the browser - it won't be 'yet another HTML editor'. Developers integrate an MS Word look & feel and a true WYSIWYG rendering.

Bjoern Meyer, President of Text Control

Text Control is used to integrate reporting into .NET applications. Users create templates with MS Word skills rather than using complex reporting designers. It is MS Word compatible and can load and save industry standard formats such as DOCX, RTF and DOC. It can be deployed on all Microsoft technology platforms Windows Forms, WPF and ASP.NET. End-users create documents and templates on all operating systems with HTML5 capable browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer. Additionally, tablets and smart phones are supported as well.

Zero Footprint - No Plug-ins

Text Control presented the first live demos at the conference and attendees were able to experience the interface at demo stations. The presented technology doesn't require any client-side browser plug-ins, it is simply pure HTML5 and Javascript.

Text Control HTML5 supports all typical word processing features such as full table support, headers and footers, sections and tab positions. Additionally, reporting elements like merge fields, master-detail views, barcodes and 2D and 3D charts can be inserted and bound to database fields.

The created templates are merged using the reporting engine of Text Control to create documents and reports as Adobe PDF or other typical formats.

Availability

The HTML5 editor will be part of the next version, X11, of TX Text Control Server for ASP.NET which is planned for quarter 3 2014.
