Table of Contents
A table of contents is based on used styles (such as headings) in a document. TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19 inserts a fully-featured table of contents automatically based on inserted contents and the defined paragraph styles.
The new ribbon tab References can be used to insert one or more tables of contents at the current input position. A dialog box is used to define the specified levels that should be included into the list. Additionally, you can define whether page numbers and tab leaders are rendered in the list.
For each level of the table of contents, a new style is added to the list of styles. They can be used to format the table of contents. You can change the complete style of the paragraph including indents, font formatting and distances. After the style has been changed, these changes are applied to the table of contents.
Leaders between Tabs
The space between tabs can show dots, dashes, or other "leader" characters to line up information. You can add content between tab positions and when you press "Tab", a line will appear with the defined characters. The formatting is added to each new line until you change the leader.
The tab settings dialog box has been extended to support the leader settings between tabs.
MergeBlock Filter and Sort
A MergeBlock is a reporting structure to repeat content based on data rows associated with this repeating block. Typically, a MergeBlock contains a list of elements such as order items in an invoice. A block can be a table row, a paragraph or multiple lines.
TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19 introduces a data shaping UI to filter and sort data rows in a MergeBlock. Using these dialog boxes, merge block row sorting and filters can be applied and modified.
An extension in TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19 provides a way to create a MergeBlockInfo instance based on an existing merge block SubTextPart.
Integrated Barcode Support
In today's processes, barcodes are everywhere: Invoices, delivery notes and boarding passes. Barcodes are used to store digital data on paper that can be acquired easily for further processing using laser-based scanners, cameras or mobile phones. With the release of TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19, barcode support is directly integrated into TX Text Control without the dependency on optional products.
Using TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19, you can add fast and accurate 1D and 2D barcodes to your .NET based applications. Integrate barcodes into reports, invoices and mail merge templates. Generated barcodes are optimized for printing and on-screen scanning.
Search within PDF Documents
The namespace TXTextControl.DocumentServer.PDF.Contents contains the new class Lines that can be used to import text coordinates from a PDF document. The Find method can be used to search for strings and to get information about the location of that string. Other implementations of the Find method allows to search for a regular expression or to search for lines in a specific range such as a rectangle or a radius.
PDF Embedded Files
PDF/A-3 permits the embedding of files in any format. PDF/A-3 documents allow the transition from electronic paper to an electronic container that holds the human and machine-readable versions of a document. Applications can extract the machine-readable portion of the PDF document in order to process it. A PDF/A-3 document can contain an unlimited number of embedded documents for different processes.
Using TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19, PDF files with attachments can be created and imported to retrieve and process embedded attachments such as electronic invoices.
A fully functional out-of-the-box sidebar is available that can be used to adjust the document settings and to add/remove the attached documents.
AcroForms: Extracting Forms Data
In TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19, the DocumentServer has been extended with a new namespace: TXTextControl.DocumentServer.PDF. Interactive forms in the Adobe PDF format are also known as AcroForm - the de-facto standard for PDF forms processing. The forms can be created and exported using TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19, so that end-users can fill-out these form fields in Acrobat Reader or other applications.
TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET X19 allows the easy extraction of form field data to collect results from completed documents.
