Open PDF in the canvas

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to open a PDF onto a canvas like an iframe view. Are there any examples?

Well, question is not really Babylon related, but this might help you.

For this purpose I would recommend to use pdf.js from Mozilla. You may use iframe or put ctx to Dynamic Texture inside 3D scene, it is up to you.

Thanks! Can you recommend any example to follow ? Because I am not sure how to integrate it in Babylon.

Take the simplest one as at https://jsfiddle.net/pdfjs/9engc9mw/
Get the content of PDF to canvas, then do with this canvas what you need to.
To use this canvas for Dynamic Texture see Dynamic Textures | Babylon.js Documentation

Would be nice to see your implementation :slight_smile:

Hey I used as simple as an iframe with higher z-index. It works as expected :slight_smile: I can add http links, images and also pdfs :slight_smile:


    <iframe
  src="myPDF.pdf"
  style="
    position: fixed;
    top: 0px;
    bottom: 0px;
    right: 0px;
    width: 100%;
    border: none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    z-index: 999999;
    height: 100%;
  ">
</iframe>
