Mail Merge Overview

Web.TextControl comes with built-in, powerful mail merge capabilities to merge templates with data from various data sources. The rich text editor is mainly used as a template designer to create MS Word compatible templates that can be merged using the Text Control reporting engine MailMerge.

The Reporting ribbon tab can be initialized with a data source (JSON or XML), so that the merge field merge blocks and drop-downs are filled automatically with available fields that can be added to a document. A sample XML data source is pre-loaded in the view code.

Demo

  1. Click Preview from the Finish ribbon group in the Reporting ribbon tab.

  2. Confirm the opened dialog Limit Preview Data with OK.

  3. See the merge preview results and close the preview using the Close Preview button.

This demo uses the MVC version of Web.TextControl included TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET.
