SfPdfViewer - When is the right moment to go to a page after loading?

Asked On July 18, 2019 07:47 AM UTC

Hi,

for my app I need to jump to a specific page of a PDF document after it has been loaded.

SfPdfViewer offers the PageNumber property to set the actual page number. Setting this property right after the document is loaded (DocumentLoaded-Event) sometimes doesn't work. It seems not to be dependent on the document size or the page number.

Something that may be related to this error: Sometimes after loading the document it is not possible to scroll down. After pinching (zoom in and out), scrolling down is possible. Also this error seems not to depend on the document size.

May be there's a way to re-layout after loading? I think, this is what happens when zooming in and out.


Thank you

Arno

Hi Arno,  
  
We have created a simple sample to reproduce the reported issue, “Setting the page number property does not navigate to the appropriate destination” in our side, but the behavior is working as expected. Please find the sample in the below link for your reference.  
 
  
However, placing PDF viewer inside Stack Layout will not allow the user to scroll the PDF document until we zoom the PDF viewer control. We need to set the VerticalOptions and HorizontalOptions for the scrollable children to properly layout inside the StackLayout for Xamarin.Forms . We have ensured the same behaviour with Xamarin.Forms WebView which is a scrollable view. Please use the below code example to get this issue resolved.   
Code Example:  
<StackLayout>  
<syncfusion:SfPdfViewer x:Name="pdfViewerControl" VerticalOptions="FillAndExpand"HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" />  
</StackLayout>  

Even After applying above proposed solution ,If you are still facing the same issue kindly share the following details to analyze more on this issue and it will be helpful for us to analyze more on this issue.  
1.       1.Simple sample/ modify the above sample to reproduce the issue.  
2.       2.Replication procedure to reproduce the issue.  
 
With Regards,

Hi,

the layout is now working correctly after adaptation of my code to your sample.
Still the problem with jumping to a page exists.
I'm assigning the DocumentLoaded event handler right after the InitializeComponent call within the page constructor.
The event handler is just setting the SfPdfViewer PageNumber property to jump to the right page.
The document is loaded by assigning a stream to the InputFileStream property of the pdf viewer.

On iOS it's failing from time to time, on UWP it's failing nearly always.

It seems the document loading takes longer and the DocumentLoader event is fired "long" before the document has finally been layouted.

I've attached one of the pdfs concerned. Here I'm trying to jump to page 59.
Document source is IMSLP.org, a source for public domain music sheets.

Cheers
Arno

Hi,

I finally found the time to build a sample reproducing the "page jump" error on iOS.
You have to tap on "Open PDF" and navigate back at least 2-3 times to reproduce the error.
Behavior is the same on iOS simulator (iPad 12'9 3rd generation) and device (same as simulator).

Pls. find attached a complete project to reproduce the error. It includes a white paper from your web site as test resource.

Thank you!
Arno

Hi Arno,

The issue with "Setting the page number property does not navigate to the appropriate destination in Xamarin.Forms.UWP" has been fixed and the patch for this fix can be downloaded from the following location. 

Recommended approach - exe will perform automatic configuration
Please find the patch setup from below location: 

Advanced approach – use only if you have specific needs and can directly replace existing assemblies for your build environment
Please find the patch assemblies alone from below location:
 
 
NuGet: 
 

Assembly Version: 17.2.0.34
Installation Directions : 
This patch should replace the files “Syncfusion.SfPdfViewer.XForms.UWP.dll” under the following folder.
$system drive:\ Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\$Version # \precompiledassemblies\$Version#\4.5.1
Eg : $system drive:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\9.3.0.61\precompiledassemblies\9.3.0.61\4.0

To automatically run the Assembly Manager, please check the Run assembly manager checkbox option while installing the patch. If this option is unchecked, the patch will replace the assemblies in precompiled assemblies’ folder only. Then, you will have to manually copy and paste them to the preferred location or you will have to run the Syncfusion Assembly Manager application (available from the Syncfusion Dashboard, installed as a shortcut in the Application menu) to re-install assemblies.

Note : 
You can change how you receive bug fixes by navigating to the following link and updating your preferences.
 
 
Disclaimer: 
Please note that we have created this patch for version 17.2.0.34 specifically to resolve the following issue(s) reported in this/the forum(s). 146060

If you have received other patches for the same version for other products, please apply all patches in the order received.
This fix will be included in our 2019 Vol 2 Service pack release which will be available in August 2019.
 
Meanwhile, we have confirmed that the issue “Setting the page number property does not navigate to the appropriate destination in Xamarin.Forms.iOS” is defect and logged defect report for this issue. This fix will be included in our 2019 Vol 3 Main release which will be available in the end of September 2019.

Hi,

I noticed that on the beta 17.3.0.9 the issue is still open.
Will this definitely be fixed in the final version, as I'm waiting for it for my first app release?

Thank you!

Hi Arno, 
 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
 
We have fixed the issue of Setting the page number property does not navigate to the appropriate destination in Xamarin.Forms.iOS in our latest release of 17.3.0.14. We have attached the video demonstrating the fix with sample provided by you in your previous update. 
 
Please find the video in the below link 
 
We suspect the latest assembly is not referred properly in your application, so the reported issue is still reproduced at your end. Please remove the assemblies from GAC using Syncfusion Assembly Manager which is available in the Syncfusion Dashboard and also, delete bin and obj folders of the sample. Then install the latest assemblies again using the Syncfusion Assembly Manager and ensure the file version of “Syncfusion.SfPdfViewer.XForms.dll” and “Syncfusion.SfPdfViewer.XForms.iOS.dll” is same as 17.3451.0.14 which is referred in your project. This could resolve the issue.

Hi 
I turn your attention on this ticket. Error describe above is fixed only for PageViewMode="Continuous". 
If is used PageViewMode="PageByPage" jump to requested page is not done.  Page 1 of PDF document is presented on screen. 
I was testing it via  PdfSample_577e90eb.zip attached above. 
I use the newest nuget 17.4.0.5O. 

This error is realy blocker  in applications that need to jump to a specific page after updating the document.

Hi,

since version 18.2.0.47 we have the same problem again.
Page jumped to when set in DocumentLoaded handler. Problem occurs on device only, simulator seems to work. Again a timing or thread issue?

There's a workaround which seems to cover the issue, invoke the page number setting on the main thread asynchronously.

Device.InvokeOnMainThreadAsync(() => pdfViewerControl.PageNumber = (int)viewModel.PageNumber);

Cheers
Arno
