    I would like to view pdf documents in the RadPDFViewer that are composed of the form which is stored in an Oracle database as a blob and data which is also stored in oracle as xml text files. The forms were developed in Adobe LiveCycle. 
    Thank you for your help.

    Have you an Xfdf? It seems that radpdfviewer cannot display it!

    We write the form file and the xml data file to a temporary directory. The form file has extension .pdf and the data file has extension .xdp. I tried loading the data file and just got a busy bar. The form file loaded fine but with no data.

    Hi Mick,

    Thank you for writing.

    Your approach with saving the stream to file and load the file from is correct. RadPdfView does not offer support for Acrobat Forms Document files.

    Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.

    Thank you for your response. Does Telerik plan on supporting Acrobat Forms in the future?
    Thanks,

    Hello Mick,

    Thank you for the question.

    For the time being we do not plan to provide supports for Acrobat Forms. Generally, we strive to deliver the most requested features first and I am not able to tell you when or whether we will implement such a functionality.

    I hope that you find this information useful.

    All the best,

    RadChart for WinForms is obsolete. Now what?

    Hi,
    I'm looking to open and save a pdf file into a radpdfviewer from Oracle blob. If you have any code that does this, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Mick,

    Thank you for writing.

    You should save the BLOB object to a memory stream - please, refer to this StackOverflow article that demonstrate this. And then you should use the RadPdfView's LoadDocumenet(Stream) method to load the document from stream.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,
