PDF Viewer - Open file control not showing

Hi PowerApps Community,

 

I inserted a PDFviewer into my canvas app but it does not have an Open File control. How do I get this control? Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

 

Adam

Hi @adammmm , 

 

If you want such a control you'll have to build it and pass it to the PDF viewer. 

 

Perhaps the Attachments control is something you want to use for that:

Hi @adammmm ,

 

Here's a very crude version of how things may work:

You will still have to heavily customize the Attachment control to make things look nice, but I hope the mechanics work for you.
