GrapeCity Documents for Word (GcWord) is a cross-platform library that allows to create, analyze, and modify Office Word documents without dependencies on MS Office.
It exposes a robust and convenient object model (based on Open XML SDK) that provides access to document content and properties such as page settings, headers and footers, and so on.
The GcWord object model was designed to make working with Office Word documents in code easier and more convenient.
For example, GcWord's notion of ranges allows to create accessor objects that stay with the designated portions of content even while the document is being modified.
In addition, GcWord provides a platform-independent layout engine that allows to render and export Word documents to PDF (GrapeCity.Documents.Layout).
The online Documents for Word sample browser is available at
