small resource footprint
offline operation – no data transfer over the Internet required
unlimited parsing volume
easy integration into any Windows application
redistribution licenses available
sample source code available for
Visual Basic (win32) and
Visual Basic .NET
Small resource footprint
RecogniContact was optimized for minimum resource requirements. The three redistributable files that will be installed on a customer's PC have a total size of less than 3 megabytes. These files already contain the database with place names and strings that are required to recognize country- and language-dependent contact information.
The time required to parse a contact information record is in the range of a few milliseconds.
Stand-alone solution – no Internet connection required
RecogniContact is a fully self-contained solution that performs the address parsing solely on the end user's computer. No connection to a server is required. Contact data need not be transferred via the Internet.
Integration with minimum effort
As a COM class, RecogniContact can be integrated into a Windows application with minimum effort. In a Visual Basic project, a basic integration of RecogniContact can be achieved as follows:
|Dim RC As Object
Dim ParsedContact As Object
Set RC = CreateObject("RecogniContact.Parser")
TextToParse = "LoquiSoft, Porzellangasse 7a/8, 1090 Vienna, www.loquisoft.com"
Set ParsedContact = RC.Parse(TextToParse)
...... now use ParsedContact.GetValue(<FieldID>)
...... to access the parsed values
