Convert Word Doc to HTML- but send to string variable instead of to Disk


I'm new to Aspose and would like to know if there is a method that sends a document converted to HTML into a string variable instead of to Disk. I hava an editor control in a .NET 2.0 C# environment, and I'd like the users to be able to browse for a .Doc or .Docx file, have it converted to HTML and then have the newly converted HTML version displayed in the editor, instead of saving it to disk. Once reviewed and/or modified, the user can save it to a database.

Any help would be appreciated. Here's the code snippet -- I'm sure it's wrong since I'm getting junk in the editor:

LoadOptions loadOptions = new LoadOptions();

loadOptions.LoadFormat = Aspose.Words.LoadFormat.Html;

Document doc = new Document(strFilePath, loadOptions);

edtNewContent.Content = doc.ToTxt();

Thanks for your inquiry. You can use code like the following to convert document to HTML string:

public string ConvertDocumentToHtml(Document doc)


string html = string.Empty;

// Save docuemnt to MemoryStream in Hml format

using (MemoryStream htmlStream = new MemoryStream())


doc.Save(htmlStream, SaveFormat.Html);

// Get Html string

html = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(htmlStream.GetBuffer(), 0, (int)htmlStream.Length);


// There could be BOM at the beggining of the string.

// We should remove it from the string.

while (html[0]!='<')

html = html.Substring(1);

return html;


Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Yes, that works perfectly . Thank you!
