Add Powerful Reporting and Word Processing Capabilities with Text Control

Today’s users expect self-service reporting and WYSIWYG word processing capabilities. Developers benefit from a WYSIWYG editor and report template designer. With TX Text Control, you get it all.
TX Text Control X11 will deliver the first true WYSIWYG Web editor and reporting template designer for ASP.NET. It will also support Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). Using the latest version of TX Text Control, developers can add industry-leading reporting and word-processing capabilities to their applications that look like, feel like, and are as easy to use as Microsoft Word. The new HTML5 control will work smoothly with Text Control’s server-side control and reporting engine, making it easy to create reports and templates.
“This is not ‘yet another HTML editor,’ ” said Bjoern Meyer, co-owner and president of Text Control USA. “The text on the screen is identical to what appears in a PDF document or on printed paper. With typical online editors such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google Docs, you can’t really modify a document. There are no tab positions, no headers or footers, and many other shortcomings. TX Text Control X11 will give you all of that as an ASP.NET component. Think of it as a better Office 365 for developers.”
Text Control is an award-winning Visual Studio Industry Partner and leading vendor of word-processing and reporting components used by developers building Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET and ActiveX applications. Its components are broadly recognized for providing advanced features that are fast and simple to implement.

Get Sophisticated and Easy-to-Use Reporting Capabilities
TX Text Control provides advanced tools for integrating flow type reporting into .NET applications. With TX Text Control, users can create documents and templates using ordinary Microsoft Word skills regardless of which operating system or HTML5-compatible browser they are using. TX Text Control also supports smartphones and tablets.
“Developers need a simple way of allowing users to create templates for documents such as invoices, sales, and product lists. Those templates should not have to be created by developers using typical reporting tools,” said Meyer. TX Text Control delivers all of the word processing capabilities end users expect, including headers, footers, sections, tables, 1D and 2D barcodes, charting, and master-detail views.
Last year, Text Control fortified its flow type layout reporting capabilities so end users can more easily create automated documents, reports, and labels using their existing word-processing skills. Developers choose TX Text Control because the robust reporting and easy-to-use word-processing features can be fully programmed and embedded into applications. In addition to the WYSIWYG text editing capabilities, TX Text Control supports charting so users can more easily comprehend large volumes of data using the more than 30 programmable chart and diagram types. On the back end, TX Text Control implements an out-of-the-box data connection wizard that connects to all types of data, including Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Access, ADO.NET, and Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). What’s more, developers can easily insert merge fields and blocks from database tables.
TX Text Control also makes it easy to build hierarchical reports simply by inserting nested repeating blocks with master-detail relationship views. Because TX Text Control is content-agnostic, developers have full control over what is repeated in a block. TX Text Control also supports industry-standard 1D and 2D barcode types, including QR Code, DataMatrix, EAN, and IntelligentMail as well as popular industry document standard formats such as DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML, PDF and PDF/A. PDF and PDF/A documents can be digitally signed and encrypted or printed directly from an application.

TX Barcode and TX Spell.NET Expand Reporting Capabilities
TX Barcode and TX Spell.NET are powerful tools that round out Text Control’s robust portfolio. With TX Barcode 3.0, developers can add industry-standard barcodes to their applications so end users can include them in documents such as invoices or delivery notes. TX Barcode is also used for flow type layout reporting.
TX Spell .NET provides unbeatable spellchecking performance, up to more than 60,000 words per second. It also includes the .NET industry’s most accurate best-suggestion engine for misspelled words. TX Spell .NET 4.0, introduces hyphenation support that can be easily integrated into TX Text Control-based applications.

Looking Forward
Text Control’s new HTML5 rendering technology radically improves the way documents are edited in a browser. With TX Text Control, Microsoft Word documents can be created and modified in any browser, on any platform, using any device. According to Meyer, the company plans to provide additional products and services that anticipate the evolving needs of developers and their customers.
“In today’s multi-device, multiplatform world, developers need to be able to deliver solutions that ‘just work’ regardless of the operating system, browser, or device,” said Meyer. “Our solutions help .NET developers deliver powerful word processing and reporting capabilities that not only work well but are also easy to use.”
