All I need to do is render a PDF in Xamarin.Forms. Can I do this with this component? I downloaded the PdfGettingStarted project but noticed you aren't using the component to view the PDF.

Hi Seth Valdetero,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

At present, we do not have support for Essential PdfViewer in Xamarin forms. However, we support viewing Pdf files through PdfViewer in Asp.Net MVC, Windows Forms, WinRT and WPF.

Please, let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thanks,

Uthistran S.

Do you support viewing in iOS and Android? How about in Xamarin but just not Xamarin.Forms?

We have considered your request as feature and have logged feature report internally on this. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity.

please Uthistran

let know about that when done, for the initial writer (Seth) as for many other, this would be the main interest of  a pdf component
to generate a pdf, I may be wrong, but this is first done on server side in most applications
Viewing a pdf, that is compeletely a user side feature, and is very interesting

Fabrice

btw: you shoudl say it more clearly in your text and advertizment : you video lets think you are viewing it withiun your component, which is false ; in fact you are lunching an external/different viewer, no ?

Hi Fabrice and Vitalii,

The support for PDF Viewer Control in Xamarin is not implemented yet. We will you know once the product is available.

Thanks for your patience

Hi,
 
  I came across this thread while searching for rendering PDF files on Xamarin.

  Having the possibility to render a PDF document and add annotations to it is the decisive factor in my case to go with Syncfusion.

  I believe the PDF Viewer control is not available yet.

  Is there an expected date on which it might be available?

  Also, and more importantly, my need is a PDF Viewer / Annotation Control. If it won't be possible in the coming PDF Viewer, let me know please.

Many thanks.

Hi Shadi, 

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products. 

At present we do not have support for displaying the PDF document in Xamarin platform. We have plans to implement PDF Viewer component for Xamarin in the near future. In the initial release, we will provide the support for viewing PDF files. In the incremental version, we will implement features such as text selection, text searching and annotations etc. 

However, as a workaround we can export the PDF document to Images in Windows Azure Service and display the exported images of PDF document in Xamarin.Forms application. Please find more information about this workaround from the below Knowledge base link. 


Regards, 
Sathish
