I have a requirement to view office documents in a WPF application for my client.
I need to view Word and Outlook .msg files. I also need to list any attachments to the Outlook files and extract them in order to view them. I want the viewer control to have some limited functionality … zooming in and out and text search being important and thumbnail generation of a given page as a bonus feature.
I also have a deadline to meet so cannot spend time ‘trying stuff out’ - I really need to get it right first time and then move on so all guidance is appreciated.
I do not need to edit documents within the app. but if it comes ‘for free’ I’ll make use of it.
1. Do Apose have controls that will do this for me?
2. Will these controls work properly in WPF (including scaling) or will I have to wrap Forms-controls in a WindowsFormsHost?
3. Can you point me to a quick code example of viewing a Word document in c#? (WPF or Forms)
The application will be deployed within an organisation to about 100 users. What sort of license will I require? I am a lone developer working under contract to the organisation.
If my client decides to commercialise the product will the license requirements change?
Will this same license allow me to develop products for other clients?
Thanks for your time,
