    Is there an ASP.NET Telerik control that can be used as a PDF Viewer on a web page?  I tried the RadBinaryImage control, but unless there is a property that I am not setting, it is not working.

    Hi Edward,

    There is no such control available in Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. One suggestion is, If you want to display a PDF file, then you can use a RadWindow as shown below.

    <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadWindow ID="RadWindow1" runat="server" Width="600px" Height="600px">
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" Text="Open PDF" AutoPostBack="false"

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function openPdf(sender, args) {
            window.radopen("FileName.pdf", "RadWindow1");

    I'm looking for an ASP.NET Telerik control that can be used as a PDF Viewer on a web page, too.
    But it seems that Telerik doesn't have one as well as a barcode generator.
    I used to view PDF on the web with the free trial of an PDF viewer SDK online.
    It works well.But I wish Telerik will offer such kinds of necessary add-ons oneday.

    Best regards,

    You can use the RadSplitter to view a PDF like this:
                       <telerik:RadSplitter ID="Radsplitter6" runat="server" Orientation="Horizontal">
                            <telerik:RadPane ID="Radpane11" runat="server" Height="400" Width="350" ContentUrl="yourdocument.pdf">       
    You can also program the RadPane ContentUrl on the server side. 

    Hope this helps.
