Load document from Stream

There might be the case when your document is not physically located on the disk. Instead, you have the document in the form of a stream. In this case, to avoid the overhead of saving stream as a file on disk, GroupDocs.Viewer enables you to render the file streams directly.

The following are the steps to be followed:

  • Specify the method to obtain document stream;
  • Pass method’s name to Viewer class constructor.

Following code snippet serves this purpose.

    public void loadDocumentFromStream() {
        FileInputStream inputStream = new FileInputStream("sample.docx"))

        try (Viewer viewer = new Viewer(inputStream) {
            HtmlViewOptions viewOptions = HtmlViewOptions.forEmbeddedResources();
            viewer.view(viewOptions);
        }
    }
