DotImage (10.6 Service Pack1)
October 5, 2015

Features Added in this Service Pack

IntelliSense support

If you are using Visual Studio 2012 or later, you can now display jsDoc comments in the all public functions in the WebDocumentViewer (WDV) and WebDocumentThumbnailer (WDT) controls. To enable this functionality, you must make direct file references to the JavaScript files associated with the WDV and WDT controls

AtalaImage Debugger Visualizer

When you find your self at a break point in your complicated image workflow and want to see the image you are currently processing, this will help.

See our blog post for more

New Object Access Controls

The following root-level controls were added to provide additional access to objects created by WDV and WDT controls.

  • "config" - a direct reference to the internal config options set by the constructor, and modified during usage. The "config" sub key is also available in the IDE as intellisense, with each option fully documented.
  • "events" - an object with key-value pairs, where the key represents an available or added event binding, and the value contains either null or an array of functions that have been bound to that event. In addition, the annotations, forms, and document root level keys also contains a subkey "events" for available bindings specific to that sub key. The "events" sub key is available in the IDE as intellisense, although custom binds created by the user do not show up as a key until runtime.
  • "domclasses" contains a list of class names assigned to different HTML elements that comprise the viewer. Use these classes to access the element such as jQuery. and modify them in certain ways.

As an example, here is how to add a green border for each toolbar button:

$('.atala_toolbar_button').css('border', ' 7px solid green');

Valid class names are shown in the table below. Use class names to access various HTML elements.

Key name



Page element class


Page image element class


Page index element class. see config.showpagenumber


Active page class


Active thumbnail class


Document toolbar element class


Annotations toolbar element class


Toolbar button element class


Class of the main outer object that holds the scrollbars


Class of the inner object that controls scrolling


Class of the inner object that defines the viewable area


Inner content container object class


Inner horizontal scroll bar object class


Inner vertical scroll bar object


Toolbar span element containing the page number


Status div


“Draw Ellipse" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Highlight" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Line" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Poly Lines" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Freehand" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Polygon" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Rectangle" annotation toolbar button


"Filled Rectangle" annotation toolbar button


"Draw Text" annotation toolbar button


"Add a Stamp" annotation toolbar button


"Add a Sticky Note" annotation toolbar button


"Add a Comment" annotation toolbar button

  • "domattributes" a list of attribute names that contain additional information about viewer state. The only property currently exposed is “atala_page_index”. Use the attributes to access page index (within the document) from DIV element that represents particular page. Example

var activePageIndex = $('.atala_active_page’).attr('atala_page_index');

Improved Support for Multi-Dimension Pages

Use the new boolean config option "forcepagefit" to specify when you want all pages to fit into the first viable page's size, or use a 1:1 size you specify.

By default, “forcepagefit” is false, which corresponds to original 10.6 behavior.

Note: Padding is no longer added to “forcepagefit” as it was in earlier versions.

OfficeAdapterDecoder: AddedPowerPoint Support

OfficeAdapterDecoder class was modified to transparently handle PowerPoint documents.

OfficeAdapterDecoder now supports the following PowerPoint formats:

  • PPT (PowerPoint 97-2003)
  • PPTX

OfficeAdapterDecoder: Performance Improvements

improve performance and throughput of OfficeAdapterDecoder in concurrent scenarios where multiple threads render office documents in parallel.
