Docentric Toolkit 1.2 has been released
This version adds support for so called “Multi-Pass Document Generation”. The feature allows you to render a document in more than just one pass. Until now, at report generation time, all Docentric elements were always processed and merged with data. The output document was “Finalized” which means that such a document didn’t contain any tagging elements; it was a plain .docx document.
From now on you can generate documents in more than one step (pass) by doing the following before calling the ‘GenerateDocument’ method:
- instruct the report engine not to finalize the output document
- specify elements that need to be excluded from the generation process.
A non-finalized output document is still a report template (containing some of the elements that were excluded from processing) which can be used as an input into another document generation (another pass).
