Reading html elements in Cascades

Hi everyone, I am trying to make an ebook reader, but I couldn't find much on the Internet that could help me. So I decided to convert the ebook files to pdf before trying to read them. I found this website that converts them. I am trying to make it so when the user selects the ebook for their phones it sends it to the Web view and converts it by automatically uploading the file to the website and then downloading and reading the pdf file.

Any help would be great thanks

Re: Reading html elements in Cascades

that does not sound like a good workflow.
you should ask the provider of the service if they have an API you can use, most likely an automated approach to using their website would be against their licenses or the like.

there also a number of existing ebook readers, maybe you can find an open source one and study it. converting ebooks to pdf is quite a bad user experience as pdf is not a good format for them.
