July 1 in 2011, e-iceblue upgraded Spire.Doc to version 4.0.3 which enables Spire.Doc support Silverlight platform. E-iceblue Co., Ltd. provides professional .NET components for .NET applications and Microsoft Visual Studio now also make his effort on Silverlight platform.
"Not only Spire.Doc, soon later, all products in e-iceblue store will add Silverlight platform for developers" said by e-iceblue CEO Jason. I guess next should be Spire.XLS. Although it’s a large step, Spire.Doc still keeps its price there without any change. That’s really good news for users. At present, only Pro edition supports Silverlight. Standard edition still only supports .NET platform and without conversion functions.
Now, Spire.Doc is a MS Word component which enables user to perform a wide range of Word document processing tasks directly, such as generate, read, write and modify Word document for .NET and Silverlight. With high quality, powerful functions and cheap price, Spire.Doc supports Word 97, Word 2003, Word 2007 and Word 2010.
Main Functions of Spire.Doc:
