PdfFormatProvider: "Import not supported" error

I'm trying to use the PdfFormatProvider to import a pdf. I've tried to import multiple different pdfs with the code below, but they all throw an exception with "System.InvalidOperationException: 'Import not supported.'" and no other info. Is this a bug or am I not calling the correct method to import a pdf?

var providerPDF = new Telerik.Windows.Documents.Flow.FormatProviders.Pdf.PdfFormatProvider();

Hello Ted,

The error you are experiencing is most likely due to a different PDF provider you are referencing. For the import of PDF documents, the PdfFormatProvider which is located in the Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.FormatProviders.Pdf namespace needs to be utilized. Also, the following assemblies need to be referenced:

  • Telerik.Windows.Documents.Core.dll
  • Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.dll
  • Telerik.Windows.Zip.dll

Hope this helps. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.
