Document Managment

Startbeitrag von Noel Tanti am 13.04.2015 13:22


What do you do when a client asks for Document managemnt to be integrated with windev?

any suggestions please?



Hi Noel

I code it myself, of course :-)
- txTextControl is he wants to edit INSIDE the application
- libreOffice (by example) via automation if he wants to edit outside
- Gembox document for format transformation (in txt to allow a full indexing, in pdf to allow sending by email, in JPG to allow easy preview on an android or web app, etc...)
- then some code to do the full index (precise and fuzzy search)
- a file containing a binary memo to store the documents itself and allow easy security management
- WXReplication on top of it to do quasi real time backup and access from android and the web
And so on, and so on...

Best regards

Hi Fabrice,

thanks for your reply.
My main difficulty is dragging and dropping an email from outlook.

Any ideas there?

I have the sample from the lst where pcsoft provided a drag and drop sample but not working properly.

Is there an easier way of doing this?

Hi Noel

I do not see what that has to do with document management, but okay...

As I have never tried to do this, I do not have a direct answer.

Working with outlook is kind of a nightmare, as different versions of the program are in fact completely different programs that have been renamed (If I remember correctly, across platform and versions, there are 10 different programs)

So if I had to work with outlook, I would use redemption to do the outlook appropriate code, and work only with one set of functions on my side.

Best regards

Hi Noel,

You could also consider to create an option to send mail to your document system (EDS).
For our document system we have a specific domain for each application. The user can generate an email address for this domain. Via a windows service we process the email every minute. So the user can send mail to the application where attachments are automatically added to the EDS. It's similar to the Evernote solution.

Hi Noel,

one way to do the email drop is to use Microsoft web browser activex control, you can use it as a file explorer just by setting the path eg

AX_NoName1>>Navigate = "C:/"

you can the just drag and drop the email from outlook into the control

Hello Noel,

There was someone selling a product called FitDoc. You might want to do a search to find it here.
