Hi Roy,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.  
We are not able to reproduce the reported issue from our side. For your convenience, we have prepared a demo sample for DocumentEditor in ASP.NET MVC 5. Please find the sample from below link.

Hello Ramya,

Thank you for the quick reply and the example.
I have looked at the example and when I run this example everything works well. But when trying to get it to work in our application it doesn't show anything. Also simple control like a datepicker isn't working. It is just adding empty tags like this

  <input id="MyFirstDatepicker">
  <documenteditor-container id="container" style="height: 1023px;"></documenteditor-container>
The controls are added in a partial view, maybe this a problem?

Hello Ramya,

I'm sorry for my late reply. It wasn't possible to send the project as it is a part of a bigger project and the code can't be shared. I figured it out why it was not showing. Because it is loading within a partial view I had to add the following code to the partial view itself

<!-- Syncfusion Essential JS 2 ScriptManager -->

It is showing but I'm not possible to load a document yet. I added the following line of code in the view, like the example you send me.


at application start we have the following routing in RegisterRoutes

 //ASP.NET Web API Route Config
                name: "DefaultApi",
                routeTemplate: "api/{controller}/{id}",
                defaults: new { id = RouteParameter.Optional }

And we have a controller

    public class DocumentEditorController : ApiController
        public HttpResponseMessage Import()
            if (HttpContext.Current.Request.Files.Count == 0)
                return null;

            HttpPostedFile file = HttpContext.Current.Request.Files[0];
            int index = file.FileName.LastIndexOf('.');
            string type = index > -1 && index < file.FileName.Length - 1 ?
                file.FileName.Substring(index) : ".docx";
            Stream stream = file.InputStream;
            stream.Position = 0;

            EJ2WordDocument document = EJ2WordDocument.Load(stream, GetFormatType(type.ToLower()));
            string json = Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.SerializeObject(document);
            return new HttpResponseMessage() { Content = new StringContent(json) };

        internal static Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType GetFormatType(string format)
            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(format))
                throw new NotSupportedException("EJ2 DocumentEditor does not support this file format.");
            switch (format.ToLower())
                case ".dotx":
                case ".docx":
                case ".docm":
                case ".dotm":
                    return Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType.Docx;
                case ".dot":
                case ".doc":
                    return Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType.Doc;
                case ".rtf":
                    return Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType.Rtf;
                case ".txt":
                    return Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType.Txt;
                case ".xml":
                    return Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType.WordML;
                    throw new NotSupportedException("EJ2 DocumentEditor does not support this file format.");

        public string ImportWordDocument(Stream stream)
            string sfdtText = "";
            EJ2WordDocument document = EJ2WordDocument.Load(stream, Syncfusion.EJ2.DocumentEditor.FormatType.Docx);
            sfdtText = Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.SerializeObject(document);
            return sfdtText;
