Hi Trinh,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Regarding Word viewer on Xamarin platform(Android and iOs):
Currently DocIO doesn’t have Word document viewer and Word to PDF conversion in the Xamarin platform and we don’t have any immediate plans to implement this feature. It may be implemented in any of our future releases.
 


Regarding Excel viewer on 
Xamarin platform (Android and iOs):
At present we do not have support to view an Excel file and convert an Excel file to PDF in Xamarin.Forms(Android /iOS platforms). However, we have added it to our Feature request list and it will be implemented in any of our upcoming releases.
We have prepared a workaround sample to read the data from Excel file and bind it programmatically to the grid in Xamarin.Forms. The sample can be downloaded from the below link.
 

Sample Link : http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/124469/ze/Sample-840048819 

Regarding PDF viewer on Xamarin platform (Android and iOs) :
At present, we do not have support for PDF Viewer in Xamarin Forms (Android/iOS) and it is under implementation. This feature will be available in our Essential Studio 2016 Volume 3 which will be rolled out by end of September 2016.

Regards,
Ayswarya

Hi Team,

Any update on Excel viewer ?

Can you suggest me ways for opening .doc,.excel,pdf file inside android/iOS app, 
but i have two limitation,
1) Due to security reasons, i don't want to open file in any external app.
2) My file is not hosted online, I just want to open file from application's local directory.

 Is there any way with syncfusion...

Hi Ramesh

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Regarding Excel viewer and editor:
We regret to let you know that currently we don’t have support to view Excel documents in Xamarin.Forms (Android/iOS). However, we have added it to our feature request list and it will be implemented in any of our upcoming releases.

Regarding Word document viewer and editor:

DocIO is a non-UI component that provides a full-fledged document instance model like the Microsoft Office COM libraries to iterate with the document elements explicitly and perform necessary manipulation.

As we mentioned in our earlier update, currently DocIO doesn’t have Word document viewer and Word to PDF conversion in the Xamarin platform. However, we have added it to our feature request list and we don’t have any immediate plans to implement this feature. It may be implemented in any of our future releases.

And currently DocIO supports viewing the generated Word document as HTML in Xamarin. We have prepared the sample to meet your requirement, as a work around and attached the same for your reference. Try running the sample and let us know whether it helps you.

Sample link

Please refer our UG Documentation link for more details about the conversion of Word document to HTML.

Regarding PDF viewer and editor:
We have provided support for PDF viewer in Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS applications through which we can view the PDF files in offline as per your requirement. Please find the documentation links of PDF Viewer below for more details.

Xamarin.Android

Xamarin.iOS

We have also attached the PDF Viewer samples in Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS for your reference and it can be downloaded from the below links.
