Word processing component maker Text Control GmbH today announced the release of TX Text Control ActiveX 16.0. The updated ActiveX controls are part of a family of products focused on enabling the integration of word processor functionality into native and managed .NET applications. The TX Text Control line includes versions for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows Forms, as well as ActiveX.
"Overall we delivered more than 40,000 licenses of TX Text Control. A significant part [of that] was ActiveX," wrote Bjoern Meyer, Text Control vice president of product management, in an email interview. "People need newer document formats such as DOCX or PDF/A, so a newer release is required."
