Read PDFs

P: n/a
Hi,
I need to develop a PDF reader, complete with ability to view the PDF page
by page. What is the best way to tackle this problem? Does vb.net natively
allow reading PDFs?

Hi,

There is not a native pdf class. Here is a link to an open
source one.

VB.NET has no native PDF support. You'll need to write your own viewer or
find a .NET PDF component. The latter is an easier solution.

However if you insist on building your own PDF viewer, the specifications
for PDF are online:
