Small Footprint

While DynamicPDF Viewer provides developers all the functionality they need to view PDF documents within their WinForm application and it does so with a very small overall size. Less than 3.4MB will be added to the overall size of the application when DynamicPDF Viewer is added(Compare this to the near 20MB required by the different versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader).

Efficient Loading

Open your first PDF document using DynamicPDF Viewer and you will see how efficient it really is. The launching of DynamicPDF Viewer is practically instantaneous and you are not forced to view any annoying splash screen during loading.

Custom Layout and Toolbar Control

With DynamicPDF Viewer you can set up the PDF viewer window exactly how you desire. Display the parts of the viewer window that you want and nothing more. The layout can be as simple as just displaying the PDF document to complex views displaying all toolbars, bookmarks, buttons, etc. You have complete control over the final DynamicPDF Viewer layout.

DynamicPDF Integration

If you are already using any of our other great DynamicPDF products or if you plan to in the future, you can rest assured that DynamicPDF Viewer will work seamlessly with all our other products. So whether you are creating PDF documents from scratch using DynamicPDF Generator or DynamicPDF ReportWriter , merging or filling in PDF documents using DynamicPDF Merger or converting files to PDFs with DynamicPDF Converter all the output PDFs can be seamlessly viewed using DynamicPDF Viewer. Additionally, since DynamicPDF Viewer can open files directly from a byte array you are not required to save your PDF files to disk before opening them.

Advanced PDF Viewing Features

While the Standard Edition of DynamicPDF Viewer gives developers all the basic viewing functionality expected in a PDF viewing control we also offer an Enterprise Edition of DynamicPDF Viewer that provides more advanced features. Take a look at our DynamicPDF Viewer Feature Chart for a list of features that can be included in the Enterprise Edition.

Additionally, it is possible for the DynamicPDF Viewer to be completely customized to meet your specific needs. If there is a feature not currently offered in either editions, please contact our sales team (sales@cete.com or by phone ) and would be happy to talk to you about providing a solution that satisfies your specific needs.
