    Hi,

    Is a PDf Viewer on the roadmap for the Blazor SDK?

    If so will a thumbnail viewer be included?

     

    Regards,

    Graham

    Hi Graham,

    You can Follow the following page for a PDF viewer and processing tools (I believe you have already found it, but I have to make sure): https://feedback.telerik.com/blazor/1404008-my-staff-loved-your-radpdfviewer-and-radpdfprocessing-for-silverlight-i-m-hoping-to-see-these-controls-or-the-same-feature-sets-become-available-for-client-side-blazor.

    The PDF viewer itself is not yet on the roadmap, but we do take community feedback actively in our plans, so it may soon show up there. At the moment, we are focusing the gird features, and the next big step is a scheduler.

    In the meantime, you can consider adding Kendo widgets to fill in such gaps: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/knowledge-base/jquery-kendo-in-blazor.

    As for a thumbnail viewer - could you provide some more details on what you would want from such a component? Would a listview suffice so you can add whatever content you wish in its items? We do not have another such component in our web suites, so I would need to get a better understanding of what you envision from it.

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Viewer/Thumb nails of pages within a document, like the adobe reader viewer.

    The thumbnails are related to the pages within a document.

    A viewer displays the active page, the thumbs show the other available pages.

    Eg. http://atalasoft-viewer-demo.azurewebsites.net/

    Regards,

    Graham

    Hello Graham,

    Thank you for clarifying this for me, I had thought that is a separate component, while it is a feature of the pdf viewer.

    At this point, it's too early to say what features will be available, especially for v1. I would suggest you follow the feedback portal page and take the component for a spin when it becomes available, so you can see what it does and what else you need it to do.

    Anyone as a clear tutorial on how to include a PDFViewer in a Blazor app until they come up with a built-in solution?

    Hello Michael,

    You can try using the Kendo UI jQuery widgets as explained here: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/knowledge-base/jquery-kendo-in-blazor. The sample may be a bit dated, but the concepts remain the same.
