Edraw Office Viewer Component

Edraw Office Viewer Component contains a standard ActiveX control that acts as an ActiveX document container for hosting Office documents (including Microsoft WordExcelPowerPointProject, and MicrosoftVisio documents) in a custom form or Web page. The control is lightweight and flexible, and gives developers new possibilities for using Office in a custom solution.


Office Viewer Component is designed to ease specific issues that make using ActiveX documents from a non-top-level host window difficult, and serves as a foundation for constructing your own embedded object file viewer or editor as an ActiveX control.

You can play PowerPoint files in the same window. You can also display password protected Word documents without supplying passwords to your users - keep your confidential data safe and secure! With the office component it is easy to upload or download files between server and client via HTTP/FTP.
