Need more info on feature set

Hi - I need to know if I can use this control to open up a Word document in a preview mode. In other words open up just the first page of the Word document.

Thank you for your interest in Aspose.Words. You can generate preview images using Aspose.Words.Viewer. See the following link for more information.

But note that Aspose.Words.Viewer namespace is currently in beta.

Best regards.

Thanks for the info. I have a couple more questions:

  1. Is this feature available for all the products that are within Aspose.Total suite? I am looking for a preview functionality that would open up a document with most popular file types (i.e. word, excel, pdf, txt, ppt, etc)

  2. When will the beta be released into the GA product?



Thanks for your request.

  1. Aspose.Words.Viewer is part of Aspose.Words. you can ask about this feature in other formats in the corresponding forums (Aspose.Cells, Aspose.Pdf, Aspose.Slides) they will answer you asap.

  2. Current estimate is mid 2008, but it is not very reliable. Please see FAQ for more information.

Best regards.

We are happy to tell you that the new Rendering Engine has replaced the “old Viewer Beta”. The Rendering Engine can print, save as images or draw onto .NET Graphics object any document page.

Please see Aspose.Words documentation to learn more about new features.

In additional, new Rendering engine allows you to convert Word document to PDF directly (without using Aspose.Pdf).

The latest version of Aspose.Words is available for download from downloads section or from NuGet
