Export as blob

Document editor also supports API to store the document into a blob. Refer to the following sample to export document into blob in client-side.

import { DocumentEditor, FormatType, WordExport, SfdtExport } from '@syncfusion/ej2-documenteditor';

DocumentEditor.Inject(WordExport, SfdtExport);

let documenteditor: DocumentEditor = new DocumentEditor({ enableSfdtExport: true, enableWordExport: true, enableTextExport: true });

documenteditor.appendTo('#DocumentEditor');

documenteditor.open(sfdt);

document.getElementById('export').addEventListener('click', () => {
    documenteditor.saveAsBlob('Docx').then((exportedDocument: Blob) => {
      // The blob can be processed further
    });
});

For instance, to export the document as Rich Text Format file, implement an ASP.NET MVC web API controller using DocIO library by passing the DOCX blob. Refer to the following code example.

//API controller for the conversion.
[HttpPost]
public HttpResponseMessage ExportAsRtf()
{
    System.Web.HttpPostedFile data = HttpContext.Current.Request.Files[0];
    //Opens document stream
    WordDocument wordDocument = new WordDocument(data.InputStream);
    MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();
    //Converts document stream as RTF
    wordDocument.Save(stream, FormatType.Rtf);
    wordDocument.Close();
    stream.Position = 0;
    return new HttpResponseMessage() { Content = new StreamContent(stream) };
}

In client-side, you can consume this web service and save the document as Rich Text Format (.rtf) file. Refer to the following example.

document.getElementById('export').addEventListener('click', () => {
    documenteditor.saveAsBlob('Docx').then((exportedDocument: Blob) => {
        // The blob can be processed further
        let formData: FormData = new FormData();
        formData.append('fileName', 'sample.docx');
        formData.append('data', exportedDocument);
        saveAsRtf(formData);
    });
});

function saveAsRtf(formData: FormData): void {
    let httpRequest: XMLHttpRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();
    httpRequest.open('POST', '/api/DocumentEditor/ExportAsRtf', true);
    httpRequest.onreadystatechange = () => {
        if (httpRequest.readyState === 4) {
            if (httpRequest.status === 200 || httpRequest.status === 304) {
                if (!(!navigator.msSaveBlob)) {
                    navigator.msSaveBlob(httpRequest.response, 'sample.rtf');
                } else {
                    let downloadLink: HTMLAnchorElement = document.createElementNS('http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml', 'a') as HTMLAnchorElement;
                    download('sample.rtf', 'rtf', httpRequest.response, downloadLink, 'download' in downloadLink);
                }
            } else {
                console.error(httpRequest.response);
            }
        }
    }
    httpRequest.responseType = 'blob';
    httpRequest.send(formData);
}

function download(fileName: string, extension: string, buffer: Blob, downloadLink: HTMLAnchorElement, hasDownloadAttribute: Boolean): void {
    if (hasDownloadAttribute) {
        downloadLink.download = fileName;
        let dataUrl: string = window.URL.createObjectURL(buffer);
        downloadLink.href = dataUrl;
        let event: MouseEvent = document.createEvent('MouseEvent');
        event.initEvent('click', true, true);
        downloadLink.dispatchEvent(event);
        setTimeout((): void => {
            window.URL.revokeObjectURL(dataUrl);
            dataUrl = undefined;
        });
    } else {
        if (extension !== 'docx' && extension !== 'xlsx') {
            let url: string = window.URL.createObjectURL(buffer);
            let isPopupBlocked: Window = window.open(url, '_blank');
            if (!isPopupBlocked) {
                window.location.href = url;
            }
        }
    }
}
