How come there is a PDf Viewer Template published and PDF viewer still not working?

Is there a set of instructions? I have tried just about everything. My PDFs sit in a document library - HTTPS but get a grey screen or grey screen with make sure your PDF is comming from an HTTPs......  Has anyone else utilized the PDF view tablet template?

Hi @tonyarc,

 

It is true that using a PDF file link from SharePoint document library directly on the PDF viewer control won't work. But you could actually workaround this issue with some help from Flow.

 

Create a flow like this:

And then in PowerApps, link the PDF viewer with a document library Gallery control like using below formula:

"FlowURL&itemid="& Gallery1.Selected.'{Identifier}'

You could find the detailed steps in the video of below thread:

That worked perfectly. thanks! One question. The PDF viewer is automatically selecting the first PDF in the library.   I used the template from powerapps. My other apps used an > or something to trigger but the pdf viewer just starts loading first item in gallery. Any Ideas?

Hello, just a question, is it in program to solve this issue? Having to use flow each time for pdfs can be a blocker for companies that need this capability to view several documents everyday.
