Edraw Word Viewer Component contains a standard ActiveX control that acts as an ActiveX document container for hosting MS Word documents in a custom form or Web page. The control is lightweight and flexible, and gives developers new possibilities for using MS Word in a custom solution.
Word Viewer ActiveX Control is designed to handle specific issues that make using ActiveX documents from a non-top-level host window difficult, and serves as a starting place for constructing your own embedded object file viewer or editor as an ActiveX control.
It can be easily integrated to the modern integrated development environments like Visual C++, Visual Basic, WPF, C# or VB.NET, Access, ASP.NET, Visual FoxPro, Delphi, PowerBuilder, and more.
