View pdf or word doc


Just wondering if there’s an available class which takes care of viewing a pdf or word doc in a component window? It is basically for including a manual with the application I’m working on.


No, sorry. If you do it as html you could use the WebBrowserComponent.

We used to send out pdf’s with our application. Normally we would have a button clicking on which the pdf would be opened. Instead of loading it on our application.

That’s a good workaround. Thanks guys.

It reduces the work load on the application and user can read the pdf in a normal pdf reader.
