DocX version 220.127.116.11 points of interest
- It contains new features,
- It has fixes for bugs found in previous versions,
- Its now smaller, the previous version of DocX was 501k this version is 127k. This was acomplished by compressing all embedded resources and decompressing them on the fly as they are required.
- DocX.ReplaceText() has 2 new overloads which allow the inclusion of headers and or footers in the replace operation.
- The Paragraph and Table classes have 4 new functions each, these allow more reliable insertions than using character indexes. These functions are listed below.
- DocX.InsertDocument() This function allows you to insert one documents contents at the end of another document. Images and CustomProperties are copied from document b into document a, however headers and footers are not (This may need to be revived).
- When you add a CustomProperty, all instances of that CustomProperty in the document are now updated correctly. Previous versions of DocX did not refresh instances that were in headers, footers or inside higher level containers such as TextBoxes.
This release includes an optional download of an advance example. This example attempts to demonstrate what DocX version 18.104.22.168 is capable of creating. This download is a ziped Visual Studio 2008 solution called "Advance - Invoice Example" and it can be downloaded below. I have written a blog post about this example here
Please note that this example is intended for an experienced user of DocX. A first time user may find this solution overwhelming. Over the next few days, I am going to create a video tutorial called "Getting started with DocX". This video will be targeted at the first time user of DocX.
