TX Text Control 25.0 provides the following new features:
Documents with Restricted Access
TextControl can edit now documents with restrictions such as forbid editing, printing, formatting or copying contents to the clipboard. These restrictions can be specified with the DocumentPermissions property of a TextControl or WPF.TextControl and they are activated, if the EditMode property is changed from Edit to ReadAndSelect. If UsePassword is specified with the EditMode property, a dialog box is opened where the user can enter a password which protects the restrictions. To unprotect the document the same password must be entered when the edit mode is reset to Edit. The set of permissions and the password are saved in the document in an encrypted form. When a password protected document is loaded it is opened read only. Supported text formats are RTF, Microsoft Word (DOC and DOCX), Adobe PDF and the TX TextControl text format (TX).
The TXTextControl WPF control implements now the text pattern interface of the Windows UI Automation technology the purpose of which is to expose rich information about the text of a loaded document through text ranges. Developers of accessibility tools can use this information to create software that makes applications running on Windows more accessible to people with vision, hearing, or motion disabilities.
Windows Forms Ribbon Controls
The TXTextControl Windows Forms ribbon library offers now a better support for chart formatting. The RibbonInsertTab provides a gallery for selecting a chart type and the RibbonFrameLayoutTab has been extended to set general chart layout features. Furthermore, the new RibbonChartLayoutTab can be used to set the chart's data, title, legend, axis titles and grid lines. With an automatic connection to a RibbonReportingTab data relations can be specified with an built-in dialog box.
Selection of Objects in the Background
The new TextControl.SelectObjects property controls the selection of objects which are located behind the text. When this property is set to true, a mouse click selects the object in the background. Otherwise, when this property is set to false, text in front of the object is selected. The RibbonFormattingTab has been extended with a Select Objects button.
Web Editor Programming
TX Text Control now supports synonyms which helps finding alternative words. The RibbonProofingTab now provides two new buttons to load specific thesaurus files from a selected directory and to open the built-in ThesaurusDialog. It provides synoynms at the current text input position. To use the thesaurus feature TX Spell.NET 7.0 must be installed.
