Any update on this feature? Do we have a release date yet on this?

Hi @rc 

Just dropping a line to ask if there are any updates on this feature? Would be very useful for a few apps in development.

 

Thanks you.

 

Best wishes,

Same here. Big project coming up where this would be extremely useful. At least an update with an estimated time would be nice. On the other hand, if this is never going to be done it would be nice to know that too.

Hi,

We have been waiting for this for some time and gave up on waiting. Currently we are solving this in a way that if the document is not a PDF, it shows a message to the user saying that we can not display the document in the app but a link to the document is provided and it is opened in another browser tab. Fortunately over 90% of the documents we use for this purpose are pdf.

Demo - PDF document displayed in PDF Viewer in PowerApps.JPG


I am finalized the development of a demo app and corrosonding blog that demostrates and describes in detail how you can view PDF, Word as well as PowerPoint documents all rendered within a PowerApp leveraging the PDF Viewer control.

 

Word and PowerPoint documents are converted at runtime to a PDF document, hence why these documents can be displayed within the PDF Viewer control.

 

Unfortunately whilst native PDF documents can at least be displayed directly within the app, if you need to prind the PDF document, the PDF document will still need to be opened in another web browser tab. Fortunately Word and PowerPoint documents converted to PDF documents at runtime can however be printed directly within the app in the PDF Viewer control.
