Load from stream

You can load a document from a stream without saving it as a file on a disk. You can use this feature to load a document from different sources like a URL, FTP, and so on.

To load a document from a stream, follow these steps:

  1. Implement a method to get the document stream.
  2. Call the Viewer class constructor. Specify the method implemented in the previous step.

The following code snippet shows how to load a document from a stream:

// Implement a method that returns a stream with document data.
Stream stream = GetStream("sample.docx");

// Render a document from the stream.
using (Viewer viewer = new Viewer(stream))
    HtmlViewOptions viewOptions = HtmlViewOptions.ForEmbeddedResources();
