Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

  1. Compare more than two Note documents

    Starting from version 20.2 GroupDocs.Comparison allows to compare more than two OneNote documents (Microsoft OneNote documents for creating and exchanging notes) this functionality works for .one files.

    Following code snippet shows how to do this, here we are comparing 3 Note files

    string sourcePath = "source.one";
    string target1Path = "target1.one";
    string target2Path = "target2.one";
    string target3Path = "target3.one";
    string resultPath = "result.one";
     
    Comparer comparer = new Comparer(sourcePath);
    comparer.Add(target1Path);
    comparer.Add(target2Path);
    comparer.Add(target3Path);
     
    comparer.Compare(File.Create(resultPath), new SaveOptions(), new CompareOptions());
    
  2. Compare more than two SpreadSheet documents

    Starting from version 20.2 GroupDocs.Comparison allows to compare more than two SpreadSheed documents (including spreadsheet file format created by Microsoft for use with Microsoft Excel, and ODS  - spreadsheet file format used by OpenOffice/StarOffice).

    This functionality works for “xls”, “xlsx”, “xlsb”, “csv”, “ods”, “xls2003”, “xlsm” files

    Following code snippet shows how to do this, here we are comparing 3 Excell files

    string sourcePath = "source.xlsx";
    string target1Path = "target1.xlsx";
    string target2Path = "target2.xlsx";
    string target3Path = "target3.xlsx";
    string resultPath = "result.pdf";
     
    Comparer comparer = new Comparer(sourcePath);
    comparer.Add(target1Path);
    comparer.Add(target2Path);
    comparer.Add(target3Path);
     
    comparer.Compare(File.Create(resultPath), new SaveOptions(), new CompareOptions());
