Working with Xamarin

In your Xamarin application, please add the required assemblies in order to use DocIO. Refer here for assemblies required.

Loading the document

The following code example illustrates how to load the Word document by using stream in Xamarin.

//Load the Word document as stream

Stream docStream = typeof(App).GetTypeInfo().Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("Sample.Assets.Sample.docx");

//Creates an empty Word document instance

WordDocument document = new WordDocument();

//Loads or opens an existing word document through Open method of WordDocument class

await document.Open(docStream, FormatType.Docx);

MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();

//Save the document into memory stream

await document.Save(stream, FormatType.Docx);

//Close the documents

document.Close();
'Load the Word document as stream

Dim docStream As Stream = GetType(App).GetTypeInfo().Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("Sample.Assets.Sample.docx")

'Creates an empty Word document instance

Dim document As New WordDocument()

'Loads or opens an existing word document through Open method of WordDocument class

Await document.Open(docStream, FormatType.Docx)

Dim stream As New MemoryStream()

'Save the document into memory stream

await document.Save(stream, FormatType.Docx)

'Close the documents

document.Close()

Save the document

The following code example illustrates how to save the Word document in Xamarin Windows Phone platform.

//Creates an empty Word document instance

WordDocument document = new WordDocument();

//Adds new section to the document

IWSection section = document.AddSection();

//Adds new paragraph to the section

IWParagraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();

//Appends the text to the created paragraph

paragraph.AppendText("AdventureWorks Cycles, the fictitious company on which the AdventureWorks sample databases are based, is a large, multinational manufacturing company.");

MemoryStream memoryStream = new MemoryStream();

//Save the document into memory stream

await document.Save(stream, FormatType.Docx);

//Close the documents

document.Close();

Xamarin.Forms.DependencyService.Get<ISave>().Save("Result.docx", "application/msword", memoryStream);

public interface ISave

{

Task Save(string filename, string contentType, MemoryStream stream);

}

class SaveWindowsPhone: ISave

{

{

StorageFolder local = Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.LocalFolder;

StorageFile outFile = await local.CreateFileAsync(filename, CreationCollisionOption.ReplaceExisting);

using (Stream outStream = await outFile.OpenStreamForWriteAsync())

{

outStream.Write(stream.ToArray(), 0, (int)stream.Length);

}

await Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchFileAsync(outFile);

}

}
'Creates an empty Word document instance

Dim document As New WordDocument()

'Adds new section to the document

Dim section As IWSection = document.AddSection()

'Adds new paragraph to the section
