Hello,

Was wondering if there are any plans to support office formats like xlsx or docx etc in the works?
If so any idea when might be available?

Thanks,

Marc Cramer

Excel, PowerPoint and other unsupported formats

I am evaluating the DocuVieware ASP.NET SDK and we like it so far, except it does not support Excel and PowerPoint formats.

Is there a way/event that the server can receive pre-rendering the document where I can open the Excel/PowerPoint document and convert it in code to PDF so the Viewer can then render it ? I know this is a hack but just wondering if this is possible.

Or is it possible for me to create a plugin to convert the unsupported formats into a PDF before the Viewer renders it ? if so, where can I get a code sample.

Thanks

Hello,

We are working hard to implement other Office and Open Documents formats.
A dozen of a days ago we've released support for the ODT format. Other ones are still on development and we hope to release them this year.

Also we don't have any built-in mechanism to triggers event when no supported files are loaded.

Please let us know if you need further information.

With best regards,

Loïc Carrère

Hello,

Docx format is already supported. For other formats, please see this thread: https://forums.gdpicture.com/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=6344

We handle this scenario by doing the conversion to PDF before we give it to the viewer.

Hello,

Yes, this is a good workaround, as many applications and browsers offer now the functionality such as convert to PDF or save as PDF. And then you can simply view the PDF file in GdViewer/DocuVieware.
