Whilst the Scriptalizer™ can be invoked via the Scriptalizer™ web based application, it is also available as a standalone DLL, available for a one-off payment, with no on-going license fees. This allows you to embed the Scriptalizer™ logic within your own application, generating "handwritten" output programmatically.
This version of the Scriptalizer™ is also COM-compatible and can be invoked in MS Office applications (such as Microsoft® Word®) and others that support COM interoperability. This allows the Scriptalizer™ to be used directly within Microsoft® Word® as a sort of plugin.
This page describes the prerequisites, options and integration of the DLL and may be used in conjunction with the fully-working example code.
The DLL (delivered as file QuantumScriptalizer.DLL) is a Microsoft .Net assembly targeting Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0. It should also run on later versions of the Framework. Note that it has been developed and tested in a Windows environment. We are not aware of any reasons why it should not work on other platforms supporting .Net (such as .Net Core or Mono on Linux) but this has not been tested and is not currently supported by Quantum Enterprises.
No additional software is required, although to successfully use Scriptalizer™ you will need at least one Scriptalizer font installed on the machine where the generated output is to be rendered, plus access to the configuration file for that font (or a compatible generic configuration).
Any .Net language should be able to call the DLL directly, and examples in both VB.Net and C# are provided, for a Windows Form application and a website demo respectively.
The package includes 20 example Premium 'Ultra' fonts and their associated configuration files.
