iFour Technolab is one of the versatile VSTO add-in development company in India having vast experience in developing a wide range of solutions. For VSTO based office development, iFour uses the following templates.
- VSTO add-ins and
- Document-level customizations
Whichever features created by the company in VSTO add-ins, are made available to the application itself, irrespective of the documents which are open. Our company builds solutions in such a way that the VSTO add-ins run at a time when the associated application is started, though VSTO add-ins are also be loaded after the application is running already.
iFour team uses numerous tools in order to create VSTO add-ins. In the systems having add-in, a class is already created which represents the VSTO add-ins automatically. This class has events and properties which can be used to access the object model and when the VSTO add-ins are loaded and shut down, code is run in a project. In VSTO add-ins projects at iFour, there are many Visual Studio features available for example an internal debugger and windows forms.
Document level customizations:
Document-level customizations by iFour have an assembly which is associated with a single workbook, template or document in Microsoft Office Excel or Microsoft Office Word. Whenever we open associated document, the assembly is loaded. As well as whichever features are created in customizations, made available when the associated document is open. Because of the customizations application cannot make wider changes, for example, displaying ribbon tab or a new menu when any document is open.
With the help of various tools available in Visual Studio, our team creates document-level customizations. The document which is customized is hosted as a design surface in Visual Studio. It enables us to design the document just by dragging and dropping controls onto it. iFour Technolab is using numerous features available in Visual Studio such as drag and drop data binding, an integrated debugger and Windows forms controls which result in a robust and sustainable solutions for client.
