PDFViewer - Return the path\filename

Hi guys,

This might sound like a silly question - but how can I get the file/path of the document presently open in the PDF Viewer ?

If I load a document as a stream, and display it in the PDF Viewer and then allow a user to save it to the disk drive ... how can I know what filename/path the user has used ?

I could not find any reference in the object browser or other forms of help.

Many thanks in advance.


Edit: I see the question has been asked here and this feature was scheduled for inclusion in May 2018 ... did that occur?

Hi Darrin, 
Greetings from Syncfusion, 
We have the API to access the filename and filepath of the loaded PDF document in PDF Viewer control.  You can find the below API to access the filename/path of the loaded PDF document. 
string filename = pdfViewerControl.DocumentInformation.FileName; 
string filepath = pdfViewerControl.DocumentInformation.FilePath; 
However, if you load the document as stream we cannot get the filename/file path. This is the behavior of our PDF Viewer control. Also, we would like to know the use case of your requirement to load document as stream and to retrieve the file path. It will be helpful for us to analyze further and provide better solution.
