Display & view documents using JavaScript

This JavaScript sample lets you display and view a PDF, DOCX, XLSX or PPTX document in our WebViewer (no servers or other external dependencies required). It shows you how to call the WebViewer constructor to instantiate and load a document. You can load local/remote files of your choice. This sample works on all browsers (including IE11) and mobile devices without using plug-ins. Learn more about our JavaScript PDF Library.
