Offline support for document viewer


#1

Hi,

We are currently evaluating groupdocs viewer and annotation using .Net libraries. We also have hybrid mobile application. In this mobile app, we need to provide functionalities like,
1. Open files from device in document viewer
2. Annotate the file and save it on device.

We have following questions to ask,

1. How to render document viewer control using JS API without .Net/JAVA libraries?
2. Offline mobile app support by groupdocs.

Regards,
Hariharan

Hi Hariharan,


Thanks for taking interest in GroupDocs.Viewer API.

First of all, please note that GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET is a back end document processing API which renders supported formats into either html or image. You can develop your own front end application to view rendered html or images. We have developed some sample open source front applications in which a document viewer control is used to view the documents. Following are the open source front end applications along with their download links. You can get help from these front end applications to develop your own.

Secondly, as I mentioned earlier, GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET is a back end API therefore you can create variety of applications including mobile apps using this API.

In case of any further questions, please feel free to ask.

Warm Regards
