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.

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.

 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
