PDF Viewer "Couldn't open PDF file"

Hi,

 

So I have manged to create a app with a PDF viewer thats takes the URL from a datacard in the form.

 

But when I try view the PDF is says "Couldn't open PDF file".

 

Why is this happening?

 

Thanks

Liam

The PDFs location is in a seperate SharePoint document library.

Hi @liamschuler ,

 

What is the formula you put in the Document property of PDF Viewer control?

In the document box, I just put the name of the DataCard holding the URL data.

Having the same issue here:

- DataSource: Sharepoint Document Library

- PDF Document Property: Gallery.Selected.'Link to Item'

Gallery.Selected.'Link to Item' URL opens fine in the browser, but not in the PDF viewer. 
Anyone have insights?
Thank you

Is this supposed to work (it doesn't)?
