10. Easy to get started
We provide a GitHub with a simple starting point for our viewer, making it really easy to get started with our viewer.
- Select Open from Source Control on the start page of VS2015 and clone the repository at https://github.com/Atalasoft/web-document-viewer-demo.git
- Open the zip folder, extract its contents and compile the solution. We will then automatically send all the latest references through the NuGet interface.
- If you get stuck, our KB articles can guide you. Just head on over to:
- If you do not have a license, you can receive one to put in your bin folder by creating an account and requesting a license at this URL:
9. Supports PDF and Other Formats
PDF and many other formats are not web native. Our viewer live-converts image formats into formats viewable in HTML5. From CAD to DICOM to RAW to PowerPoint, we can easily display any image in our viewer, without additional code.
8. All the pieces you need, already included
Our HTML5 WebDocumentViewer comes ready to display all of your documents. In Addition to giving you the ability to quickly scroll through pages, our thumbnail viewer allows for pages to be rearranged and documents to be appended. The document toolbar adds the ability to open, resize, zoom in/out and more. Our annotation toolbar can easily be added to give you quick access to the annotation features you need.
And the best part? They are fully customizable!
7. Speaking of Annotations
Atalasoft's viewer has annotation support built right in - Just set the config option annotations to true. We maintain 8 out of the box annotation types, including text, freehand and rectangle. This enables many different kinds of document interaction, natively and in-browser, and only requires the config property:
6. Touch Support
It is likely that you will need to view images both on your computer and on mobile devices. Being able to use the same viewer in both situations is a huge plus. We have structured our viewer to comply to standards set forth by Apple and Google, automatically without additional code.
5. Data Security
Because the images are being rendered in real time on the server, it's possible to protect data and leave breadcrumbs as to who accessed and saved the data in the event of a leak. Auto redaction can be performed intelligently based on the users permissions on the server before reaching the user, hiding the data that the user shouldn't have access to. Atalasoft provides the tools to add these custom data security functionalities easily.
4. In-Browser PDF Form Fill
Want to present interactive documents where data can be saved to a unique PDF? A single configuration option is all that needs to be turned on to add fields to a document. The hard part is all handled, and if a custom workflow needs to be kicked off, the server has events connecting user action to your backend process. Enabling this is as simple as setting a configuration property of the viewer.
3. Huge Document Support
Not all documents are created equal - Some are massive juggernauts. Take Moby Dick for example, its 861 pages of white whale hunting goodness, our viewer can handle it. We dynamically load pages where the viewer is focused to reduce load times and prevent in-browser memory crashes. This makes a huge difference, and you don't need to add any code.
