PDF Viewer

The ASP.NET MVC PDF Viewer control supports viewing, reviewing, and printing PDF files in ASP.NET MVC applications. The hyperlink and table of contents support provides easy navigation within and outside the PDF files. The form-filling support provides a platform to fill, flatten, save, and print PDF files with AcroForm. PDF files can be reviewed with text markup annotation tools.

Customizing the PDF document name while downloading

You can customize the name of the PDF document using the fileName API in the DownloadStart event of the PDF viewer. Refer the following code snippet.


<div style="width:100%;height:950px;">


function OnDownloadStarts(args) {
var pdfviewerObj = $("#pdfviewer").data("ejPdfViewer");
pdfviewerObj.fileName = "XYZ.pdf";
