MS Office Mobile SDK for rendering files RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are building an application in Xamarin; and would want to render MSOffice files (Word, Excel, PPT) within our app.

    Is there a MS Office Viewer (cum editor) SDK; which can render MS Word/PPT/Spreadsheet within our app (for all – Android / Windows / iOS)?

  • For help with Xamarin please post on the Xamarin forums at http://forums.Xamarin.com. There are probably third party libraries which do this, but I don't know if any are cross platform. Your best bet is probably to use your search engine and then take a look at the options to see which meets your goals best.

  • Thanks Rob; Will also post in the respective forum; however wanted the SDK irrespective of Xamarin. If there is one for Android only; would be happy to integrate it.

  • I don't know anything about 3rd party SDKs for this beyond what I (or you) can find in a search engine. There are a few options, but I can't speculate as to which fits your needs best and I can't make a specific recommendation. You'll need to check with the 3rd party control vendors. I don't believe there's a Microsoft solution for Office files in UWP apps, and I don't know if there is for iOS or Android. You could check in the Office dev forums on that, but it's definitely off topic in the UWP app dev forum.
