TechDoc Web View is a client-server solution that links to a TechDoc database from an Internet Browser and search and find document records kept in that database.
Searching for a document is mostly done in a Tree View where the user follows a tree to find the document required. That document then opens in the Viewer that runs on the server. The information of the documents can be shown. The user can also search the database by typing search criteria in the Search fields. The result is shown as a grid in the Result screen. There the user can select the required document and that one is viewed. Also a file can be printed, markups can be placed and even collaboration with other users is possible, again if the user has the rights to do so.
TechDoc WebView joins real-time to a TechDoc database, so it requires at least one TechDoc desktop version running on the server side for administration purposes. The TechDoc WebView comprises out of two parts: An administrator WebConfig module running on the server side and a ASP.Net application running in the client WEB Browser.
