Simple question - Save from browser


I am new to Aspose and would like to know if the following is possible, and if so - how:

Open a word document from a database into the browser, the user edits the document in the browser, and when he clicks on Save, it saves the edited document back to the database.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.




Thanks for your request. I think that you can use Aspose.Words.Viewer namespace to achieve this. The Aspose.Words.Viewer namespace provides classes to render and print Word documents without utilizing Microsoft Word. But current version of Aspose.Words.Viewer namespace is a Beta version. And No technical support is provided for it. See FAQ for more information.

Best regards.

Thanks, maybe my question wasn't as simple as I thought. As far as I can see, the Viewer only allows me to print the document to paper (by using DocumentRenderer.Print) or view it as a bitmap (by using DocumentRenderer.GetPages), am I correct?

My problem is, I want the user to edit the document, then submit the edited document back to the server. I know this could be done by having the user downloading the doc, then uploading it again from his machine, but want the user to edit the document through the browser and then clicking on save, which would automatically save the changed doc to the database.

Is this possible?


Sorry for this. You are absolutely right. Unfortunately, You can’t do this using Aspose.Words. But you can try to use Aspose.Editor to achieve this. See the following link for more information.

Best regards.

Thanks for your help! I will try Aspose.Editor
