    If I try to load a PDF that has several layers with the RadPdfViewer then all layers are shown but how do I allow the user to decide what layers should be shown?

    I cannot find any way in the viewer where I can set what layers should be shown.

    In any standard pdf viewer you are able to manage what layers you want to see e.g. to show layer 1 and 3 but not 2.

    Hi Morten,
    RadPdfViewer does not support layers, and for now this feature isn't planned for implementation.

    Hi Guys

    I know this is not my thread and its 4 years old,I have not been able to find any more information on radPDFViewer and layers.

    Is it still the case that radPDFViewer does not support layer?

    Is there any plan to support layers?

    No layer support is causing issues for us so we might have to change to another component if there is no plans to support layers

    Unfortunately, you are correct that RadPdfViewer does not support layers yet. I've created an item in our Feedback and Ideas portal and if you'd like you can subscribe to it and upvote it. This way you will be notified in case of any development and the priority of the feature will be raised in our backlog. Unfortunately at the moment implementing it is not in our immediate plans.
