Perspective - PDF Viewer

Component Palette Icon:


The PDF Viewer component displays a PDF that's hosted on a web server by providing a URL to the source property. A simple approach is to create either a File Resource or Mounted Folder within Web Dev, and set the source on the component to the resource's endpoint.


Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective. This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.
