How to show pdf file


    JAPIB - 2016-12-23

    Is there a way to show pdf file into visualization, like we can show TXT file with the Text Editor Element.
    J think we can use an ActiveX Element, but how ? The help is very short on this subject.

    Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas

    Hello everybody
    Nobody as a solution to see pdf file in a visualization page.
    The idea is to create help pages by including operating manuals or manuals.
    Thanks in advance for your ideas.

    Actually I use CODESYS from 3S and Soft PLC Control Win !
    But I think this can be usefull for every target, If we want to make a "help on line" by showing an operating manual or other PDF information file.

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you, that seems to be a nice workaround.

    I've been trying with the Internet (for example with '') as URL and it works fine.

    But I would like to use this to show a PDF file stored in the InternalStorage or th SD Card, do you how to do that?

    I've tried many combination with no success

    just point to the directory of the pdf file will do, eg
    your using control win, then the pdf are save in D driver then just set the path to D:\xxx.pdf.

    This is work for me
