    Hey there, 

    I am using DocumentHanlder plugin currently in my Android  and iOS app development. 

    the handleDocumentWithURL where I used for display PDF document in my App is working on iOS

    but in Android App. I donnot know how to resolve this please help. 

     var sourcePath = cordova.file.applicationDirectory + '/www/' + encodeURIComponent(filePath);
                handleDocumentWithURL(function () {
                }, function (error) {
                }, sourcePath);

    Hi Biao,

    Judging by the provided code, you are providing a path to a local file and I don't think this plugin is intended to work this way. It is said in the documentation that you have to pass a URL to the web site where the file is hosted.

    If you want to open a local pdf file I would suggest using the InAppBrowser plugin which we have integrated in our Core plugins. We have a sample app that demonstrates this case.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
