RadPdfViewer joins the cast of WinForms controls allowing you to load and interact with PDF documents from your hard drive, network share, URL or from an in memory stream.  The use of RadPdfViewer in your applications does not rely on any additional third party applications!  You have the ability to Open documents, Zoom, Search for text, Print, and navigate PDF documents when you associate the Viewer with a RadPdfViewerNavigator control.


The Visual Studio 2012 Dark Theme has been added, giving your applications the visual appeal of Visual Studio!
