How to initialize the PDF viewer without displaying PDF document in .NET MVC application?

1 min read

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.

Initializing the PDF viewer without PDF document

PDF viewer does not support initializing it without PDF document. However, as a workaround, you can initialize PDF viewer without loading the default PDF document in two ways:

1. You can provide space character to the client side documentPath API.

@(Html.EJ().PdfViewer("pdfviewer").ServiceUrl("../../api/PdfViewer").PdfService(Syncfusion.JavaScript.PdfViewerEnums.PdfService.Local).DocumentPath(" "))

2. You can provide empty string to the Load() method of the Web API controller.
