MS Office API support

Hi all,

I want to create an app to read .docx file.

Is there any API support it?

Not built in to Cascades, but there are a few libraries out on the Web that you might be able to compile for BlackBerry 10. You could try starting here.

... but it is one of the formats supported by Docs to Go, which can be invoked...

Re: MS Office API support

@BBSJdev... but of course that would mean that the OP would be opening the document in Docs to Go, rather than in his/her own app, even if opened as a card. Couldn't tell from the original question whether that would be acceptable.
