    Hello lakshmi jeeva,

    In silverlight there is no word or pdf viewer which you can use out of the box for this. you have the option to save the generated pdf content to a file and then use the RadHtmlPlaceholder to point to it. RadHtmlPlaceholder is using a browser iframe to display the content.

    Kind regards,

    I have a similar question: I am doing the same thing (storing pdf data in a database FILESTREAM) and want to just display it in a WinForm. I don't really care what I use to do it so long as I can embed it in the form and do basic manipulation. Any ideas (a component for viewing pdf would be Really Good but I don't see one in the WinForm list...) suggestions, etc. would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Hi Bruce ,

    Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, we do not provide a PDF viewer in WinForms as well and we do not plan to develop such a control currently.
