Clickable links on PDFs

im using this to add links to a pdf file

                    RectangleF uriAnnotationRectangle = new RectangleF(popupAnnotXPosition, popupAnnotYPosition, 80, 20);
                    PdfTextWebLink linkAnnot = new PdfTextWebLink();
                    linkAnnot.Url = pdfAnnotationMsg; 
                    linkAnnot.Text = pdfAnnotationMsg;
                    linkAnnot.Font = new PdfStandardFont(PdfFontFamily.Helvetica, 8);
                    linkAnnot.Brush = PdfBrushes.Blue;
                    linkAnnot.DrawTextWebLink(p, uriAnnotationRectangle.Location);

and it works well, but when my PdfViewer control loads the file, the links aren't clickable
am i missing something?

Hi Ric,
Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.
At present we don’t have support for Link navigation in PDFViewer WinRT, so the links aren’t clickable after loaded the file in PDFViewer Control. We have already logged a feature request for the implementation of this feature “Need to support Link navigation in PDF Viewer”. We will let you know once the feature is implemented.
