What’s New in 2017 Volume 3

Essential Studio for Windows Forms lets developers build better apps, and the addition of content control support for DocIO, customization support for message boxes, and tagged PDF support all put more power in developers’ hands.

Content Control Support for DocIO

DocIO now allows creating and modifying content controls in Word documents and provides a way to design documents with form-like user interfaces, non-editable content controls, and content bound to XML data.

Customization Support for Message Boxes

The font in message box elements can now be customized for elements like the header, details, and buttons.

Tagged PDF Support

Provide accessibility support by allowing users to create PDF/Universal Accessibility (PDF/UA) or section 508 compliant PDF documents.

Transparent enterprise pricing. No extra fees.
