We are using GroupDocs 21.4.1 with the angular client in a .NET MVC application. Our implementation is as follows:
- UI contains links to documents
- User clicks on document link (viewer/Index?file=[filePath])
- The document is downloaded to the location in the above [filePath]
- GroupDocs generates the html files and resources and displays in the viewer
However, we now have a requirement that the files cannot be downloaded and stored on the server. They must be loaded directly into the viewer. Is this possible with the updated GroupDocs API and angular client? I see docs related to Loading from URL and Loading from FileStream, but the code seems different from what is provided in the .NET expample project. Also, will the “file” url parameter still work or does this necessarily look for the file in the local file system? Are there any docs that list what other parameters are available?
In short, I need users to be able to click a link and view a document in the angular viewer without that document having to be stored on the server.
Any help you can provide is much appreciated!
