Good news for ASP.NET Web-Form developers, we are proudly announcing the first release of our modern Web-Form based user interface for GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET API. This new release is simple, efficient and, user friendly showcase project. We would recommend you to clone this showcase project from GitHub and provide you valuable feedback.
Let’s explore key highlights in this new user interface.
The look and feel has been completely revamped using Material Design.
Desktop, Tablet, Phone
Mobile responsiveness is built into the new app. It works fine with all kind of screens ranging from phone, tablet, desktop and even retina display. When you move from large screen to smaller, the viewer will automatically re-arrange its layout to adjust into the available area.
The app is compatible with famous browsers including Internet Explorer. You will get same user experience when using it in any modern day web browser.
The document is rendered in HTML mode and loads very quickly as compared to image-based rendering. This also enables you to copy-paste text from the document.
The left sidebar of viewer allows you to preview thumbnails of document pages. You can jump to any document page by clicking on its thumbnail.
The app provides you a button on top toolbar to download and save the original document. You can also download a PDF of document, which can be later used for printing.
GroupDocs and its upstream products of Aspose are famous for its accurate rendering. The app delivers same promises of GroupDocs and renders the document with high precision.
Unlike our previous app, the document is rendered in isolated environment so that the HTML/JS/CSS of app does not conflict with CSS of document itself.
Open Multiple Files
The top toolbar allows the user to switch between available files to open. The list of available files is populated from server automatically. To add new files to the list, just put them in storage directory.
The best part is that full source code of the app is available to download from GitHub. You can also contribute to the app by sending a pull-request.
The app covers most APIs of GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET, which allows anyone to see how to use same API in their own apps.
The app can be easily embedded or integrated with another app of your choice. You can either use IFRAME or embed it as AngularJS Module.
