Methods


<static> addCustomModal(options)

Add custom modal element to WebViewer.

Controlling custom modals is done using the element API, for example openElements, closeElements, toggleElement, and disableElements. dateElement string passed on these function should be same as you set in options.dataElement.

Every custom modal will add new <div> element with CustomModal and <options.dataElement string> set as class attribute Modal with identical options.dataElement will get replaced by the latest modal options.

Accepts a function that will be called every time a note in the left panel is rendered. This function can be used to add, edit or hide the contents of the note.

Please carefully read the documentation and the notes below before using this API

This API is experimental and should be used sparingly. If you find you are heavily relying on this function, it is recommended that you fork the UI repo and make the changes directly in the source code (Note.js).

The structure of the HTML that is passed into this function may change may change without notice in any release. Please make sure to test this function thoroughly when upgrading WebViewer versions.

There may be unexpected behaviour when using this API. The HTML that is provided is controlled by React, and sometimes React will override any changes you make. If you find any unexpected behaviour when using this API, then this API probably won't work for your use case and you will have to make the changes directly in the source code.

Do not use document.createElement to create DOM elements. Instead, use the provided `createElement` utility function provided as the third parameter. Do not use HTMLElement.removeChild or any other APIs that remove elements from the DOM. Doing so will cause React to lose reference to this node, and will crash. If you need to hide an HTML element, set the style to `display: none` instead.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
noteTransformFunction UI.NoteTransformFunction The function that will be used to transform notes in the left panel
Example
Webviewer(...)
  .then(instance => {
    instance.UI.dangerouslySetNoteTransformFunction((wrapper, state, createElement) => {
      // Change the title of every note
      wrapper.querySelector('.author-and-time > .author').innerHTML = 'My custom note title';

      // Add a button that alerts the user when clicked
      const button = createElement('button');
      button.onmousedown = (e) => {
        if(state.isSelected) {
          alert('Hello world!');
        } else {
          alert('Goodbye world!');
        }
      };
      button.innerHTML = 'Alert me'
      wrapper.appendChild(button);

loadDocumentOptions

Type:
  • Object
Properties:
Name Type Argument Description
extension string <optional>
The extension of the file. If file is a blob/file object or a URL without an extension then this is necessary so that WebViewer knows what type of file to load.
filename string <optional>
Filename of the document, which is used when downloading the PDF.
customHeaders object <optional>

Name Type Argument Description
templateValues Core.TemplateData <optional>
If set, will perform template replacement with the data specified by this parameter
doTemplatePrep boolean <optional>
If set, it will interpret the office document as a template document and compile all of the template tags in the document
disableBrowserFontSubstitution boolean <optional>
By default, office viewing takes a lightweight approach to font substitution, allowing the browser to select fonts when they are not embedded in the document itself. While this means that WebViewer has access to all the fonts on the user's system, it also means that an office document may have a different "look" on different systems (depending on the fonts available) and when it is converted to PDF (as the PDF conversion routine cannot obtain low-level access to user fonts, for security reasons). disableBrowserFontSubstitution prevents this browser substitution, forcing the WebViewer backend to handle all fonts. This means that viewing and conversion to PDF will be 100% consistent from system-to-system, at the expense of a slightly slower initial viewing time and higher bandwidth usage. Using https://www.pdftron.com/documentation/web/faq/self-serve-substitute-fonts/ along with this option allows you to fully customize the substitution behaviour for all office files.
formatOptions object <optional>
An object that contains formatting options for an Office document. Same options as allowed here Core.PDFNet.Convert.OfficeToPDFOptions.
Properties
Name Type Argument Description
applyPageBreaksToSheet boolean <optional>
If true will split Excel worksheets into pages so that the output resembles print output.
displayChangeTracking boolean <optional>
If true will display office change tracking markup present in the document (i.e, red strikethrough of deleted content and underlining of new content). Otherwise displays the resolved document content, with no markup. Defaults to true.
excelDefaultCellBorderWidth number <optional>
Cell border width for table cells that would normally be drawn with no border. In units of points. Can be used to achieve a similar effect to the "show gridlines" display option within Microsoft Excel.
excelMaxAllowedCellCount number <optional>
An exception will be thrown if the number of cells in an Excel document is above the value. Used for early termination of resource intensive documents. Setting this value to 250000 will allow the vast majority of Excel documents to convert without issue, while keeping RAM usage to a reasonable level. By default there is no limit to the number of allowed cells.
locale string <optional>
Sets the value for Locale in the options object ISO 639-1 code of the current system locale. For example: 'en-US', 'ar-SA', 'de-DE', etc.
