    Hello everyone ,

    I have a problem that when a staticaly wrote documentSource as
    <telerik:RadPdfViewer x:Name="viewer1" Margin="0" DocumentSource= "..b14314.pdf" />
    

    there is no problem , and works correcty .

    But I have to pass the path which is dynamically changed  as a a parameter from my computer , 

    Since I use a gridview for my datas and every data has own pdf doc.

    So I have to show the pdf file  according to selected row in gridview.

    -- Can anybody help me passing document source path , passing from code behind .?

    Thx in advance.

    Hello Mehmet,

    In Silverlight, it will not be possible to open a PDF file by specifying the file path from your computer. This is due to the security policy of Silverlight, which allows opening files from the client machine only through the OpenFileDialog.

    When it comes to opening a file that is added to the project as a resource, you can find more information about that in this article. You can also open documents from a stream, as long as the stream supports read and seek operations, as noted in the online help.

    I hope this answers your question.

    All the best,
