Displaying PDF Files


You can display PDF files in your forms.


Local PDF File

To display a PDF file inside the form:

  1. Drag and drop the HTML Element component into the Form Designer.
  2. In the Content field of the Display configuration tab, enter <iframe src="/file://path-to-file" />, where path-to-file is the local path to the file you want to read.
  3. Set the height and width of the PDF file in your form by adding the width and height attributes in the <iframe> tag.

For example, to display the PDF file located at C:\Folder\doc.pdf formatted as 350x500 pixels (width x height) , enter the following snippet:

<iframe src="/file://c:\folder\doc.pdf" width=350 height=500></iframe>

Dynamic PDF File

To render a PDF file dynamically:

  1. Set the PDF file path as a variable in the FormFieldsCollection (Studio) and name it pdf.
  2. Navigate to the Display tab of the HTML Element component (Form Designer).
    3.In the Content field, add <iframe src={{data.pdf}} width=350 height=500></iframe>.

You can set the full HTML tag containing the PDF file as a variable. In this case, bind the data using only {{data.pdf}} in the Content field.
