Open and save attached files.

Our WPF PDF Viewer displays attached files in its Navigation Pane. Attachments linked to a PDF can be opened and saved to disk. The PDF Viewer also includes an option to display a security warning when opening a file attached to the PDF.

Fillable PDF Forms

Edit documents with Acroforms.

Once you've integrated our WPF PDF Viewer in your project, your users can edit any PDF document that includes form field information. The DevExpress PDF Viewer renders each field based on its associated form type - text box, radio button, combo box with auto complete, check box, and lists.

If your PDF document includes Acroform data, you can import from or export to the following formats: FDF, XFDF, XML, and TXT.

Select & Copy Document Content

Copy text and images to the clipboard.

You can select and copy text/images from a document to the clipboard with the context menu, the CTRL+C keyboard shortcut or API.

We rely on DevExpress WPF controls to build the user interface of our commercial application (nQuery). We appreciate the quality and look and feel of these controls, the quality of the documentation and the excellent technical support. David Lemoine / Lead Developer, Statsols
