Every Wednesday we publish a new tutorial based on one of our existing XAMLflix videos.  This week we focus on the PDF Viewer, which allows you to view PDF files inside your Silverlight or WPF applications.  With no need for an additional viewer. 

You can scroll, pan and zoom your PDF files to get a better view of your content.

This week’s tutorial covers

  • Getting Started with the PDF Viewer
  • Using a Toolbar with the PDF Viewer
  • Integrating RadRichTextBox with the PDF Viewer

Getting Started introduces the RadPDFViewer and shows how to add one to a new project in Visual Studio. 

Using A Toolbar with the PDFViewer explains how to add a Toolbar to the RadPDFViewer to allow the user to load and navigate within the PDF file, including zooming in and out of sections.

Integrating RadRichTextBox with the PDF Viewer demonstrates how to use a RadRichtextBox to edit data and then save that data as a PDF.  We then use RadPDFViewer to display our new document.

Telerik XAMLflix for WPF controls Hopefully you’ve seen here just how quickly and easily you can add RadPDFViewer in your next line-of-business application.

As a reminder, this is only one of the many controls offered in the Silverlight/WPF suite. Be sure to download your own copy of the Silverlight and WPF control suite right now.

We’d like to hear from you.  What would you like us to be covering in future XAMLFlix videos and tutorials?  New controls? Advanced features?  Just add a comment to this post with what’ you’d like.
