The PDF Viewer component displays a PDF that exists as a file in some accessible filesystem, or as a URL. Note that this component is simply for viewing existing PDFs. To create dynamic reports, use the Report Viewer component.
This component is typically used in conjunction with the File Explorer component, in order to create a PDF viewing window. See the File Explorer documentation, as well as the File Explorer and PDF Viewer page for instructions on how to put these two components together.
This component is not as high-quality as Adobe Reader. This component can only be guaranteed to correctly display reports generated by the Report Viewer. In practice, it is able to view many PDFs, but it does have trouble with some, especially PDFs created by AutoCAD.
