    Hello

    Yes there is a simple posibility to use PDF in zenon just create a screen from type HTML and create a screenswitch funktion when creating the SW funktion you can enter in the URL the path of your PDF.

    Hint: dont use "" because it does not work.


    Best regards

    Hello, I've got a pretty similar question, but I need to open PDF files in Zenon WebClient. I store PDF file on the runtime machine.
    Now I want to open it in Zenon Web Client - ScreenType HTML.
    How my URL adress should look like? Do I need to install PDF viewer on Runtime machine?

    Hello michalt,

    1. Do I need to install PDF viewer on Runtime machine?
    -> The Client PC needs to be able to view PDF in the normal browser (PDF Plugin).
    -> Otherwise it would not work in the zenon HTML Screen.

    If that works then I suggest to include the PDFs into the IIS of the WebServer.
    - Locate a folder with the PDFs and set the Security: add user "Everyone" with read access.
    - in IIS go to the zenon and add a virtal directy with link to your manuals-folder.

    In zenon HTML screen they can then be accessed with https://WebServer-hostname/zenon/name created manual directory/name of pdf.pdf

    Hope that helps.

    BR,
    Georg

    I would suggest you don't need any extension to do so but third-party service allows to view pdf's. With Zenon 8 I use this one https://990-pf.pdffiller.com/ But it's a paid one. As well it doesn't work with Zenon perfectly depending on Windows version. I'm running it under the previous build and everything works pretty well but one of my clients tried to do so with the device where the latest april update has installed and it's quite unstable there

    Hello Team,
    While using HTML screen type to show PDF files in runtime, my pdf docs opens outside the runtime in Adobe reader. I want it to open inside Zenon HTML screen itself.3
    Please suggest
    Regards,
    Joel
