Getting Started University

Welcome to Text Control. This getting started hub will help you integrate TX Text Control functionality into your web applications.

Evaluation Options

To test the functionality of TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET, you can download and install a fully functional trial version setup to create applications (option 1) locally on your machine. In order to test the client-side packages (document editor and viewer), you can alternatively create a trial access token to use a hosted trial backend (option 2).

Download Trial Version

The trial version is fully featured. It will expire after thirty (30) days at which point, your application will cease to function. This option allows you to develop web applications completely locally on your machine.

Download Trial

Create Trial Access Token

To test the client-side packages including MVC and Angular, you can create a trial access token that gives you access to a hosted trial backend for evaluation purposes. This doesn't require any download or installation on your local machine.
