Hi,

I am getting an unsupported exception when converting a pdf document into a RadDocument. Here is the setup I am currently using.

1. Pdf file is embeded in XAP and I would like to show it in Silverlight (or show the generic 'Open', 'Save' and 'Cancel' dialog, which I have realized is not possible with a file embedded in the XAP).
2. Using Application.GetResourceStream to get to the stream. (I have checked the stream and it looks fine with lots of bytes... :))
3. Using DocumentFormatProvidersManager.GetProviderByExtension(extension)n to get the IDocumentFormatProvider.
4. I get the right format provider which is pdf.
5. on  doing provider.Import(stream) i get a NotSupportedException.
6. I have referenced all the dlls from telerik for silverlight (just being safe, this is a test app only anyway).

Any help is appreciated.

And it would be great if anyone out there knows how to show the generic 'Open', 'Save' and 'Cancel' dialog of a browser for a file in the silverlight xap (NOT with a http url)

Thanks in advance
Nrupal

Hello NrupalC,

PDF importing/visualization is not supported for now. It's in our to-do list, but we don't have specific timeline.
Let us know if you have any other questions or proposals.

Sincerely yours,

Hello Tim Tos,

We are already considering implementing a PDF viewer for Silverlight, however, due to time constraints, we're not sure exactly when it will be available.
I am creating a PITS issue regarding this item, which you can use to track our development plans:
You can follow the PITS Issue by its ID: 7075 
Here you can find the PITS Issue: Public URL 

Best wishes,
