Solve two major problems in one
Foxit WebPDF Viewer solves two major needs frequently faced by software development organizations.
- Cloud and server-based environments display content on non-standardized, heterogeneous clients. Application developers use PDF to ensure a robust, high-fidelity, and consistent end-user experience across platforms. But support costs can accelerate if end users don’t have a PDF viewer installed locally or if the PDF viewer is out of date. This SDK quickly and easily solves the problem with a web-based PDF viewer that supports all popular browsers.
- Second, document owners may want to control how their documents are distributed. Once a document is downloaded, distribution is difficult to control. This SDK provides the application with a convenient and secure way to provide end users access to the file on a server (when using the server-side viewing option) but still control viewing, annotation, printing, and similar operations.
No downloads needed
Foxit WebPDF Viewer is a rapid SDK that allows developers to provide a complete PDF viewer with powerful tools through web browsers without requiring additional software downloads or installation. Since browsers are device-agnostic, end users can use any popular desktop or mobile device.
Full control of documents
The original document can be stored and viewed server-side without being download by user to the document owner retains full control. It also supports importing user permissions from a third-party system to set different functions for different users.
Server-side and Client-side
Foxit WebPDF Viewer can render documents in two different modes. The mode that the application developer chooses to use will be based on their particular requirements such as whether the documents that need to be viewed are stored on a server or stored locally on the end-users machine. Each mode provides different benefits.
The Server Rendering (SR) engine ensures that the document is rendered and displayed server-side without the actual PDF being downloaded to the end-users machine or device, so your business has complete control over how the documents are distributed. The SR includes all features –available in Foxit WebPDF Viewer and works on desktkop and mobile devices.
WebPDF Viewer also provides the ability for the application developer to control which rendering engine is used based on the security permissions of the person viewing the document.
