Re: how to integrate pdf reader in blackberry to upload, download and read .pdf file

Are you want to know how to view PDF files in BB? I assume PDF file upload and download will be taken care by sending PDF file as byte array to server, right? if not explain what do you mean exactly upload and download?


You can view PDF file in BB, check this thread for more details,



Note: You have to install 3rd party PDF reader in BB device to open file via your application. If you have Doc2Go PDF reader, open once and accept terms and conditions.
