Launch PDF from Silverlight?

We can successfully create and save a PDF from our Silverlight app, but I'm wondering if there is a technique for launching a generated PDF in a browser window from a SL app. In our use case users will want to print immediately in many cases, and we would rather not force them to save, re-open, and print if possible.

I can imagine a scenario where we could generate the same pdf back on the web server, then link to that URL, but I would rather skip that if possible and just pop up a window with the Silverlight generated pdf.

Hi Darryl,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Currently it is not possible to launch the PDF directly from Silverlight application. As you said, it can workaround by generating the PDF file in the webserver and then link to that URL.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
