Call this Open method to open a document from the server’s file system. When you open a document for the first time, the control loads it to the server’s memory and generates a DocumentId from the pathToDocument parameter value.

If the document is already open, the method activates the document stored in the server’s memory.

string pathToDocument = Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/Documents/doc.rtf");
