    string extensionName,
    string filePath

A string value that specifies the Spreadsheet name.

filePath String

A string value specifying the path to the document to open.


Type Description

A ActionResult object that represents the result of the operation.


Use the Open method to open a document located at a specific path on the server.

Note that the Open method uses the control’s parameters stored as an additional parameter of the control’s work session to restore all the controls settings and return a relevant partial view in a controller action. It is recommended to avoid using the DocumentManager.CloseAllDocuments method that clears all the session parameters, including control settings and close only specific documents using the documents names.

Alternatively, you can open documents by passing a document name from a controller to a partial view using the View Data collection and invoking the Open method directly in the partial view.
