Create a DOCX using C#
Aspose.Words for .NET allows you to create a blank Word document and add content to the file.
// Create a Word document. Document doc = new Document(); // Use a DocumentBuilder instance to add content to the file. DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc); // Write a new paragraph to the document. builder.Writeln("This is an example of a Word document created in C#"); // Save it as a DOCX file. The output format is automatically determined by the filename extension. doc.Save(dir + "OutputWordDocument.docx");
Create a PDF in C#
Aspose.Words for .NET allows you to create a new PDF file and fill it with data.
// Create a PDF document. Document pdf = new Document(); // Use a DocumentBuilder instance to add content to the file. DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(pdf); // Write a new paragraph to the document. builder.Writeln("This is an example of a PDF document created using C#"); // Save it as a PDF file. pdf.Save(dir + "OutputDocument.pdf");
Convert a Word document to HTML with C#
You can convert Microsoft Word to PDF, XPS, Markdown, HTML, JPEG, TIFF, and other file formats. The following snippet demonstrates the conversion from DOCX to HTML:
// Load a Word file from the local drive. Document doc = new Document(dir + "InputWordDocument.docx"); // Save it to HTML format. doc.Save(dir + "OutputHtmlDocument.html");
Import a PDF and save as a DOCX via C#
In addition, you can import a PDF file into your .NET application and export it as a DOCX format file without the need to install Microsoft Word:
// Load a PDF file from the local drive. Document pdf = new Document(dir + "InputDocument.pdf"); // Save it to DOCX format. pdf.Save(dir + "OutputWordDocument.docx");
