Hi Experts,

I need your help, I am developing a web application using ASP.NET and I need to compare two files and highlight the differences.

is there any reliable commercial control or component that might help me, I found one but
it is too simple and does not have good user interface. There are many applications that
provide the compare functions but they don't offer API for developers.

this is just another program!
I don't need a program, I need a component or API that I can use in my web application.

You could try:

http://www.araxis.com/merge/automation_ref.html

This product does have an API.

But it would be useful if you would expand upon what you are trying to achieve.  Displaying two versions of a file side by side so the user can see the differences is an interactive activity - is that what you want or do you want to automate the comparison of a large number of files and then at the end of the process report on the differences?

Hi

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I don't think anything like this exists.  A post on another site (http://forums.asp.net/p/1238406/2258478.aspx#2258478) asked the same question, and received the same answer.

I did quite a lot of research on this, found a solution that had an API as the asker requested, but it was not quite what he was looking for.  Further research led to me to state that there was no such product on the market.  Negative responses are quite valid to a question that asks "is there something available".  I therefore believe points should be awarded for my answer 24196392.
