What is the best Infragistics way to output custom documents to PDF and MS Word from C# and WPF? The output should be the close to identical for both PDF and MS Word.
This is a document assembly operation by the user.
The documents will include a) title page b) page header and footer c) text with different font size, bold and other formatting with the same character set d) images e) tables with text f) tables with right aligned numbers User work-flow - Select PDF or MS Word format - Select data to include or exclude. The data comes from multiple sources, none of them are from a database, table or grid - Select the order to output the data - Enable / disable page headers, footers and page numbers - Select the file path to save the output file - Output the document - Our application will then load the document in MS Word or Adobe Acrobat Reader. Our application does not have a document preview or viewer. Target platform: Windows 7, WPF, C#, .NET 4.5 or 4.0. We are already using Infragistics WPF v12.1 for graphing, ribbon, etc. Thank you
You will want to take a look at two of the frameworks that we provide. One is the Infragistics Document Engine and the other is the Infragistics Word Library. The document engine is used to produce PDF and XPS files while the word library is used for producing Microsoft Word documents.
Infragistics Document Engine:https://www.infragistics.com/help/winforms/waw-infragistics-document-engine
Infragistics Word Library:https://www.infragistics.com/help/wpf/word-library
The document engine is available as part of our WinForms product but it has no dependencies on WinForms itself so you can use the assemblies in WPF applications. Just include the Infragistics4.Document assemblies into the project and you can start creating PDF files.
The Infragistics Word Library comes with both the WPF and WinForms product so you can use either one.
Let me know if you have any further questions on this matter.
Your Infragistics Document Engine link is broken.
Thanks for letting us know about the broken links Adam! I have updated both to more up-to-date ones.
