        export default {

                };

            provide: {
                //Inject require modules.
                DocumentEditor : [SfdtExport, WordExport, Selection, Editor]
            }
            methods: {
                exportBlob: function() {
                    //Export the document as Blob object.
                    this.$refs.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.

Copied to clipboard
function exportBlob() {
        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);
            //Send blob object to server.
            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);
}
//Download the rtf document.
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;
                }
            }
        }
}
