We have an old legacy Silverlight app we've been asked to try and add functionality. Our Silverlight is a typical line of business app that has a sql backend and we use WCF services to interface with SQL. We've been asked to come up with a way to display pdf files. On our internal server, we have the pdf's stored and we can return them via a stream via WCF. We can't just redirect users to an html page because of security reason.
The overview is we have sales orders in a grid, we'll need to create a grid column that contains a ticket number. The user will click on that if they want to see the ticket in pdf format. The click will need to initiate a call to a service endpoint what will lookup the pdf file by ticket number and return it as a stream. We need to then take that stream and display it in a now window. I was thinking about a taking the stream, and opening up a Rad Window to display the PDF Viewer. The controls we have from back then don't contain the PDF viewer.
Is this doable, are there any samples I can use to show this is viable to put in a req for the new control? Thanks
