how to preview a pdf in outsystems without downloading it

how can i preview a pdf in outsystems without downloading it?

i had opted for file previewer forge component but it sends uploaded data to google docs and views it in the app. I do not want to send client data to a third party for security reasons. A client uploads documents in the database eg ID document. I now want a manager to preview the files without downloading them.

How best can i achieve this?

Hi Rudo,

You could check this forge component. It claims to be able to preview most of the document types you mention. You can also check this other forge component for a PDF previewer only.


please check this post and try one of this forge components: Pdf preview plugin, File Viewer Plugin, Web Previewer.
