    Hello,
    when i try to load PDFs which comes from a scanner (so the pdfs contains an image), the RadPdfViewer ist very slow.
    I have a pdf which is about 1MB full color, it takes about 8 seconds to load/render.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Thank you!

    Hello Sebastian,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Testing with similar PDF of that size it takes about 4 seconds to load on my computer. However it is possible with different files or on different machines the result to be different. Currently processing big images is a time consuming operation but I can assure you that we will do our best to improve the performance of PdfViewer in the future releases.

    If you have any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    The RadPdfViewer does seem very handy, but I am also running into problems with it being slow to load PDFs as well.  Even when ranging in the 500K size, it seems that if the source PDF file was created from a JPG, then loading it is slow.  Slow meaning a 2 second delay vs. the Adobe Reader's virtually instantaneous load time.  This 2 second delay occurs again for each additional page that comes into focus while the user scrolls through the pages of the document.

    Are there any user level optimizations that I can do?  Such as specifying some type of caching / pre-loading?

    Hello Karl,

    Currently RadPdfViewer does not support any user level optimizations regarding JPEG images rendering. I am afraid I cannot suggest anything else for now.

    If you have additional question do not hesitate to contact us again.
