TextGlow, the prototype Open XML Viewer for Silverlight is one of the most popular posts in the brief history of my blog. Intergen, a Microsoft partner in New Zealand, have now elected to offer the source code for this application on OpenXMLDeveloper.org. I am very excited about this development, Silverlight is amazing, and the combination of Open XML and Siverlight easy for a nerd like me to get excited about.
If you haven't signed up for OpenXMLDeveloper.org, now is a good time to do so. You'll find this source code as well as other projects to help your development of Open XML solutions.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Displaying Open XML documents in Silverlight with TextGlow By James Newton-King
The Office Open XML file format has opened up a new range of possibilities to working with documents. The Microsoft Office 2007 suite of products replaces the old binary formats and produces documents in a parser friendly XML format by default instead.
TextGlow (www.textglow.net) is a Silverlight 2.0 application that leverages the new Office Open XML file format to display Word documents directly in the browser. This article will look at how to use the built-in features of Silverlight 2.0 to read content from an OpenXML package, parse XML using LINQ to XML and display the document contents using Silverlight.
That's great !
Do you know if the license allows to use and\or modify it in my projects ?
Intergen will clarify this in the article on OpenXMLDeveloper.org
Excellent ! Thanks to Intergen to make it available to the community. Great work. Thanks Gray for the info.
