DocumentViewer Object

Summary

The DocumentViewer is the main class used by the Document Viewer.

Syntax
TypeScript
JavaScript
function lt.Document.Viewer.DocumentViewer 
	implements IDisposable 
class lt.Document.Viewer.DocumentViewer() 
	implements IDisposable 

Remarks

The DocumentViewer is not a control itself: instead, it uses the UI controls created by the parent containers. These containers are native controls in the calling platform - for example, Control in Windows Forms and DIV in HTML5/JavaScript.

Create a document viewer by calling the createDocumentViewer method. You can then use it by loading a LEADDocument object and calling the SetDocument method to view the document.

When the document viewer is created, a new instance of the DocumentViewerView is created and set in the DocumentViewer.View property.

Next, a new instance of the ImageViewer control is created and is added as a child control to the DocumentViewerCreateOptions.ViewContainer. This image viewer will be used to view the Raster or SVG image data of the pages when a LEADDocument is set in the viewer. This control can be accessed by using the ImageViewer property.

Then the interactive modes are initialized and added to ImageViewer.InteractiveModes.

Example

This example will show how to create a functional DocumentViewer in your application.
