    Re: GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET questions

    Hello Zhang,

    Thank you for showing interest in GroupDocs.Viewer.

    The new GroupDocs.Viewer is a UI-less API exposing only UI-less+back end document rendering APIs in which object oriented approach has been implemented in a very simplified way.

    Users can mold the output according to there requirements. Also the API can be used in restful/web/wcf services and those services can be used anywhere either in mobile apps or in any other platform.

    Please find below some resources to quickly get started:


    Thanks in advance

    Hello. I want to know whether GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET supports Mono or Xamarin.

    We have not fully tested GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET on Mono or Xamarin. We'll perform some investigation and let you know but most likely it does not support Mono for all document formats. We'll share more information soon after detailed investigation. Please stay tuned.

    Re: GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET questions .NET

    Hi usman.aziz,

    I've tried to use GroupDocsViewer in a Portable (PCL) Xamarin UWP - Project. I managed to reference the dlls, i found at your download-section. As soon, i start the Xamarin-UWP-App i get a 'System.TypeLoadException'. It says, that it cannot load 'System.Runtime.CompilerServices.SuppressIldasmAttribute' from assembly 'mscorlib, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral'

    I checked my sources and it seems to me, that this attribute is not available in the mscorlib that Xamarin uses. As it is working on Mono, it seems, there are problems with Xamarin. Can you check this out? Is there any way to Groupdocs with Xamarin?

    Thank you very much for your help,
    Regards,
    Ivo

    Re: GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET questions

    Hi Usman Aziz,

    thank you very much for your quick response.

    We use Xamarin.Forms 2.3.3.175 (with Visual Studio Prof. 2015 + Xamarin Extension 4.2.2.6). Our Operating-System is Windows 10.

    We have a Xamarin Crossplatform Solution with Portable Class Libraries (https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/application_fundamentals/building_cross_platform_applications/part_3_-_setting_up_a_xamarin_cross_platform_solution/). in the UWP Solution we have a CustomRenderer where we want to use the Groupdocs-Viewer. So in the UWP (PCL)-Project, we tried to reference GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET 16.12.0 (DLLs only)

    I hope, the Information is helpful. If necessary, I can provide you with an example solution.

    Again, thank you very much in advance,
    Best Regards, Ivo

    Re: GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET questions

    Attachment: Present (inaccessible)
    Here is our example-project.

    It is a simple Crossplatform-Xamarin-PCL. It has a Master-Detail-Form, which has a "Filelist" (Master). When you select a file, then the detail should render it (as pdf.)

    As we are only interested in the UWP-solution, we disabled all the other Projects (iOS, android...).

    Before you start,
    1. copy the GroupDocs.Viewer.dll (http://downloads.groupdocs.com/viewer/net/new-releases/groupdocs.viewer-for-.net-16.12.0-(dlls-only)/) into the directory .\externalLibs
    2. do a package-restore: (use the "Update-Package –reinstall" Command in the Visual Studio 2015 Package-Manager-Console) -
    then rebuild the App und start the DocViews.UWP-Project (make sure, you have the x86 Architecture selected)


    Thank you very much in advance!
    Best regards, Ivo
