Kendo Angular PDF Viewer
There appear to be no decent solutions for PDF viewing in Angular in handling viewing of downloaded PDF files that works intelligently and consistently across all desktop and mobile browsers, and supports navigation, saving, and printing.

1. The Angular Kendo Report Viewer is limited to Telerik reports generated using the Telerik Report web infrastructure and doesn't handle PDFs from other sources.

2.  There is an open source Angular viewer, that provides reasonable viewing and navigation, but doesn't support save to file. or print.

3.  Syncfusion have a very nice Angular PDF viewer, but requires buying there whole Angular suite.

Hi Jason,

What could be done is to share all requirements or expectations of the PDF Viewer component in this thread. That will be valuable feedback that we will do take into account when work on the PDF Viewer component begins. Once we have a beta version it will be released and be able to be used. We will still collect feedback at this point and the PDF Viewer will be further enhanced by adding new features, enhancements, and bug fixes with future releases.

Hi Svet.  Can we be part of your Beta program on this component.  This is an essential feature of our platform and the JQuery version is causing us a few problems.

 

Thanks,

Jason.

Hi Novak,

Thank you for the provided extensive feedback on the Kendo Angular PDF Viewer!

The component is currently planned for the R3 release of 2022.

At this point, I am unable to say what features its initial release will include, but I can assure you that all provided feedback in this feature request will be taken into account.

Hi Svet,

great news. From my point of view, what should be at least supported is the following:

  • For sure the possibility to view Pdf :)
  • Configurable options:
    • Show/hide tool bar (navigation, number of pages, etc.)
    • Choose page display mode. At least single page and multi page mode should be supported
  • Possibility to programmatically:
    • perform navigation (next page, previous page)
    • get current page
    • perform zoom in/out

Would this be possible in the first release? When can we expect release?

 

Best regards,

Novak

Hi Mike,

At this point, it isn't clear what features will be included in the initial PDF Viewer release. I am affirmative that we will take into account the desired forms support functionality and consider it when work on the PDF Viewer is about to begin.

In this PDF Viewer implementation initial release is it planned to be able to handle pdfs with form fields that allow the user to click into the form fields and type, then print/download the pdf? Or will it only render the pdf without the interactive form fields and just display the form field value flattened onto the pdf?

Kendo UI Angular PDF Viewer would definitely be well appreciated especially if its handled (client side).

As @Novak said in the previous post, competitors already have it but some of them require a service side component that I find not ideal.  

Telerik would be a no brainer on that mater with that feature part of the package.

Let's hope it's coming soon.

Thanks for making it happen.

Lets make Telerik stronger!

Hello,

For the next few official releases we are targeting the TreeList as the most complex major new component, and ongoing improvements on the Editor, Charts, Scheduler and Grid. Some minor components like a ListView might make it to the roadmap too.

I am afraid a PDF Viewer component is still not a part of our immediate and midterm plans, but as mentioned, we are still tracking the ongoing interest for all feature requests in our portal and might change the priorities depending on the interest. There is no specific number of votes that a request needs to accumulate in order to be considered for research and development, but in general the higher the vote rate is, the better the chances the feature request will become a part of the roadmap sooner.

Meanwhile we can suggest using the Kendo UI for jQuery PDF Viewer in the Angular application as described in the following documentation article:

Hey do you think there is enough demand based on Votes on this thread to say this acceptable feature for a target release?

Hello,

I would like to provide some details about the Feedback portal thread labels (for example - "Approved"). We understand how this might cause confusion and misunderstanding, but the Approved tag refers to the feature request itself - it means that it is a valid feature request, and the enhancement/feature is something that we are willing to consider implementing in the future based on the customer demand.

It does not mean that we have added the feature to our roadmap and/or started any research and development related to it.

The feature discussed in this thread is still not a part of our immediate plans, but we are tracking the demand for it (as well as for all other feature request), and will prioritize based on the interest and estimated business value when updating our roadmap.

I'm also looking for a PDF viewer in the Kendo Angular suite. Are there any plans?

 Hey, I think it will be great if we can have KendoUI Angular PDF viewer to render documents since we already have paid subscription for KendoUI
