Can I open the generated PDF document directly into the browser window instead of displaying the Open/Save dialog in browser?

Yes, we can open the PDF document directly into the browser window with the help of the Response object. Please do follow the below steps to generate the PDF document inline,

  • Save the PDF document as Stream object
  • Write the Stream in the Response object

C#

//Save the PDFDocument as a Stream the output to the browser.
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();
doc.Save(stream);
//Stream the output to the browser.
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "inline; filename=MyPDF.PDF");
Response.AddHeader("content-length", stream.Length.ToString());
Response.BinaryWrite(stream.ToArray());
Response.End();

 

VB.NET

'Save the PDFDocument as a Stream the output to the browser.
Dim stream As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream()
doc.Save(stream)
'Stream the output to the browser.
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "inline; filename=MyPDF.PDF")
Response.AddHeader("content-length", stream.Length.ToString())
Response.BinaryWrite(stream.ToArray())
Response.End()

 

Please do find the sample from the below specified location which demonstrates the above specified feature,
