TX Text Control .NET for Windows Forms Enterprise X19
Table of contents
  • Table of Contents - A table of contents is based on used styles (such as headings) in a document.
    • You can insert a fully-featured table of contents automatically based on inserted contents and the defined paragraph styles.
    • The new ribbon tab References can be used to insert one or more tables of contents at the current input position. A dialog box is used to define the specified levels that should be included into the list. Additionally, you can define whether page numbers and tab leaders are rendered in the list.
    • For each level of the table of contents, a new style is added to the list of styles. They can be used to format the table of contents. You can change the complete style of the paragraph including indents, font formatting and distances. After the style has been changed, these changes are applied to the table of contents.
  • Leaders between Tabs - The space between tabs can show dots, dashes, or other "leader" characters to line up information. You can add content between tab positions and when you press "Tab", a line will appear with the defined characters. The formatting is added to each new line until you change the leader. The tab settings dialog box has been extended to support the leader settings between tabs.
  • Integrated Barcode Support - In the new release, barcode support is directly integrated into TX Text Control without the dependency on optional products. You can add fast and accurate 1D and 2D barcodes to your Microsoft .NET based applications. Integrate barcodes into reports, invoices and mail merge templates. Generated barcodes are optimized for printing and on-screen scanning.
  • PDF Embedded Files - PDF/A-3 permits the embedding of files in any format. PDF/A-3 documents allow the transition from electronic paper to an electronic container that holds the human and machine-readable versions of a document. Applications can extract the machine-readable portion of the PDF document in order to process it. A PDF/A-3 document can contain an unlimited number of embedded documents for different processes. PDF files with attachments can be created and imported to retrieve and process embedded attachments such as electronic invoices. A fully functional out-of-the-box sidebar is available that can be used to adjust the document settings and to add/remove the attached documents.
  • Enhanced 4K DPI Support - Starting with Microsoft Windows 10 Creators Update (1703), the view of applications depends upon the DPI of the display in which its main window is primarily located. Version X19 supports multiple monitor setups where each display has a different scale factor and the application is moved from one display to another. In this case, TextControl and all UI elements including the RibbonBar change their DPI scaling factor dynamically.
  • AcroForms: Extracting Forms Data - The DocumentServer has been extended with a new namespace: TXTextControl.DocumentServer.PDF. Interactive forms in the Adobe PDF format are also known as AcroForms. The forms can be created and exported so that end-users can fill-out these form fields in Adobe Acrobat Reader or other applications.
    • Version X19 allows the easy extraction of form field data to collect results from completed documents.
  • Manipulating MergeBlockInfo Objects - Typically, a merge block is used to repeat content such as table rows. The MailMerge class uses the hierarchical data to repeat the content and to populate fields with data in that block. Filters, sorting instructions and rendering conditions can be defined through a dialog box, or when adding a merge block programmatically through the MergeBlockInfo class. An extension provides a way to create a MergeBlockInfo instance based on an existing merge block SubTextPart.
  • Search within PDF Documents - The namespace TXTextControl.DocumentServer.PDF.Contents contains the new class Lines that can be used to import text coordinates from a PDF document. The Find method can be used to search for strings and to get information about the location of that string.
    • Other implementations of the Find method allows to search for a regular expression or to search for lines in a specific range such as a rectangle or a radius.
