    Hi there!
    Can I get hold of the bookmarks, links in the pdf file from RadPdfViewer or am I just out of luck?
    If I can, how do I do it?

    Hi Peter,

    Please refer to this article which describes the exposed API for retrieving and using Annotations such as Links and Bookmarks. It sounds like it would be just what you need.

    I also checked this link but don't know what to do with this as , "pages" shows "HasContent" as false for each "page"

    I have bookmarks within my pdf and want to list them down to be shown in my pages as information but not sure how to do it using this code in above mentioned URL.

    Please help me with that.

    Hi Pravin,

    The bookmarks collection in the PDF document model is a hierarchy of objects where each bookmark item has a destination and title. You can access the destinations collection on document level and use the RadPdfViewer.GoToDestination functionality in order to implement the bookmarks behavior, as can be seen on the Annotations section you referred to.
    You can achieve your own bookmarks implementation by building UI based on the destinations collection. However, as the title and bookmarks hierarchy information are not provided on document import, you should build your own bookmarks structure and visualize it as preferred.

    I am happy to say that the bookmarks implementation for RadPdfViewer is in progress and is scheduled for the upcoming R3 2018 release. We have logged a feature request in our feedback portal, where you can subscribe to be notified for any status updates.
