Work with free form ActiveX control using C#

Word Output.zip (377.4 KB)
We are looking for rendering the pre-generated DOCX file from content management solution in a Aspose HTML editor. Currently the HTML editor we have built for previewing the DOCX file is on a ActiveX VBA technologies and support have been stopped. we are looking for the alternative replacement for the same.

The DOCX file will have a free form field embedded in it. User will be able only input the free form field data in the letter all the other content in the DOCX file is read only and he can do the local print for the given view.

Is there any solution in aspose which control free form edit, formatting of data , local print and downloading the edited content in aspose. Please share the integration details if available.


Unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not provide API to work with free form ActiveX control. Could you please ZIP and attach your input and expected output documents here for our reference? We will then provide you more information about your query.

We have uploaded the read only docx output file (i.e… wordoutput.zip) which is getting previewed under the HTML editor. The formatting option in the HTML editor is used to control the text formatting entered in the free form field and also we have save button to save the copy locally.
