Document Framework Technology

The LEADTOOLS Document Framework is a comprehensive collection of .NET (C# & VB) and HTML5/JavaScript development libraries to create, read, markup, and update raster and SVG images, annotations, thumbnails, text data, and metadata. The Documents development framework is perfect for programmers that need to create solutions for Enterprise Content Management (ECM), document retrieval, Legal eDiscovery, and document normalization.

The focal points of the Document Framework are the Document Viewer and Document Converter. Respectively, these technologies display and convert files in such a way to provide the same rich feature set to image and document formats alike. Applications with this level of file format abstraction can increase productivity and simplify workflows by negating the need for several task-oriented applications and utilities: in other words, users can get to their actual work sooner.

White Papers Written About Document Framework

  • Converting and Viewing Documents with LEADTOOLS

    Convert a Word document into a PDF file. View the PDF, annotate it, and then save it. This process sounds simple enough, right? What if the original document was a TIFF file? Is it just as easy to convert a TIFF to a PDF and then view, annotate, and save the new file? What if you have ten different file types to view, annotate, and save, and what if those different files are both raster images and vector documents? And what if your job requirement specified that you can only do this task in one application, using one viewer control? This commonly requested task no longer sounds so simple. The new Document Converter and Document Viewer found in LEADTOOLS Version 19 not only make it possible to view and annotate raster and vector based file formats in the same control, they make it easy.

  • End-to-End eDiscovery with LEADTOOLS Document Imaging

    When it comes to change, the desire for efficiency is surely at or near the top of the list of reasons. Some processes and industries are harder to change, especially those that have been around for a long time. Court systems in many countries are one of the oldest and most well established processes to ensure all-around fairness, even if it must sacrifice expediency. Thankfully, the legal industry has taken major strides towards adapting to the digital age with the evolution of eDiscovery and document imaging.
