    Hi there,

    I search a little bit and seems that there is no possible to open a local pdf file and display it in HtmlPlaceHolder, isn´t it?

    I want that user browse some pdf file in his disk and then see the content in silverlight application, but it seems impossible, for now...

    Any suggestion?

    Hello Nelson,

     Accessing the local file system is limited in Silverlight.  However, there is a tricky workaround that uses RadUpload to upload the pdf file on the server and then uses an IFrame pointing to the file but that is a very inelegant solution.
