Solution

PDF is a special format, so you cannot convert it to text by default.

You will have to get, for example, Aspose to extract data from PDF to text or soemthing similar.

Or you will have to OCR the pdf and then show it.

Or you simply try to display with the <embed> tag (if the targetbrowser can handle html5)
