UWP Simple PDF viewer

By | September 19, 2016

Some months ago, I blogged about how to display PDF files in your UWP app: Displaying PDF files in a UWP app

When I look at the stats of my blog, I notice that that particular blogpost gets a lot of visitors. Also, I regularly get mails from people having questions about displaying PDF files in a UWP app.

So, I figured out that this is something a lot of developers seem to need or want to use. And that’s why I thought I’d make a custom control for this exact purpose.

You can find the control, together with the source code, on my GitHub: SimplePdfViewer

Usage:

Result:
pdf print screen

If you have any suggestions for this control, please let me know! I’ll try to gradually keep on improving this control.
