Software component vendor Text Control has released version 17.0 of its word processing component family TX Text Control, along with a brand new product in the shape of TX Spell .NET for Windows Forms and WPF. Aiming to provide developers with the features expected in a high-end word processing package, but in reusable component form, Text Control has most recently worked to improve the user experience of its "tables" function.
Responding to what Text Control lists as multiple user requests, new functionalities have also focused on page and section borders controls. TX Text Control ships with an entirely new feature to allow users to add a border around one or more edges of a page or section. The Page Setup dialog box has been extended to include a new tab, which allows programmers to set the width, style, and color of the border and edges on which the border should appear. Borders can be set to run around the edges of a page, or relative to the text on the page.
The new spell checking products TX Spell .NET for Windows Forms and TX Spell .NET for WPF can be used with an unlimited number of dictionaries and user dictionaries at the same time, thus enabling the ability to check documents which contain multiple languages. TX Spell .NET is compatible with the freely available and deployable Hunspell dictionaries of OpenOffice.org, of which there are more than 60 to download and deploy.
