Your Thoughts Please


Recommended Posts

Not a typical "mail-merge" app more of a standard letter based on inputs.


I am working on the following:


Load existing docx into a preview panel.


Done this stripped xml and wrapped <p></p> around newlines (\n).


Highlight text in panel to create field


So I use the mouse to highlight text. on release a pop-up arrives and replaces the text with an input from the user for the field-name i.e {{Name}}. This is stored in a grid on another panel.


So far this is a standard "mail merge" markup facility.


Your thoughts 


Within the document there are paragraphs than can be one or the other. (Boolean Field) and (Drop down - Select).


All the markup is held in a mySQL database on completion.


Now that I have written the post I believe it becoming clearer in my mind. 


Any thoughts of doing it differently or is there something similar already.
