GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET Library – Generate Word & PDF Documents from Templates in Your ASP.NET / C# Apps

GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET LogoWe are pleased to announce the release of the new library that enhances a set of our document collaboration tools - GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET. The library generates PDF and Word documents from templates by automatically filling out merge fields with custom data. If your company or a client have to create tens or hundreds of documents by filling out standard templates with data obtained through user input or from a DB, this library can be of great help. Just to mention a few examples, it can be used to generate legal documents, insurance policies, invoices, bills, NDAs, order quotes, offer letters, and any other types of documents.

The library can be installed with just a single DLL and allows you to easily embed document generation functionality into your ASP.NET / C# application. The server part of the library is deployed in conjunction with a web UI, which allows end users to prepare templates and get completed documents without any help from developers. The workflow is simple:

1. Users create templates in a Word or PDF format by adding merge fields to documents. Templates can be prepared in any office software that supports PDF or DOC/DOCX file editing.
2. GroupDocs.Assembly's wizards guide users through composing questionnaires (interviews) where each question is associated with a merge field in the templates. The questionnaires can be then embed into a web page or an application.
3. For each completed questionnaire, GroupDocs.Assembly generates a new, unique document by incorporating data entered through the questionnaire into the template. The finished document is available for download right away.

To see how GroupDocs.Assembly works yourself and explore its features in detail, please try out our web app.

Key Features & Benefits:

  • Easy deployment with just a single DLL + customizable web UI.
  • Data can be pulled from web forms (online questionnaires) or from a DB.
  • Ability to handle JavaScript events such as onTemplateCreated, onTemplateMerge, etc.
  • Simple wizards guide non-developer end users to prepare questionnaires and get completed documents with no coding required.
  • Support for different types of form fields, including text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, list boxes and combo boxes.
  • Ability to set default values for each question, restrict respond length and value range.
  • Output documents look exactly like the template, but with custom data filled into the form fields.
  • We offer free deployment support to help you get the library up and running quickly. We're also open to feature requests to customize the library to your requirements.

If you'd like to try the library, please download a free evaluation copy from this page. We also offer a free 30-day license, which allows you to test the library without any restrictions - just contact our sales to get one.

Flexible document management: configure your storage provider from within GroupDocs

Flexible document management: configure your storage provider from within GroupDocs

The steps to configure Windows Azure as your default GroupDocs provider are straight forward. First, create a Windows Azure account to get primary access key and account name.  Once you have collected the required details, log in to GroupDocs to configure these details. The steps are as follows:

  1. Go to the Storage Provider area on your profile page.
  2. Select Azure from the Provider list.
  3. Enter your Azure account name in the Account Name field.
  4. Enter the primary access key from your Azure account in the Account Key field.
  5. Enter a preferred container name for your Azure container in the Container field.
  6. Click Apply.

One important point here is that you don’t need to create an Azure container on your own. Simply choose a name for the container, and GroupDocs will do the rest. Creating a container in Azure is otherwise a complex task.

Please refer to our Integration of GroupDocs with Windows Azure documentation to get an in-depth description of how to integrate with Azure.
