linkXamarin.Android

linkNew features

  • SearchResultsView now works properly when clicking List all of the SearchToolbar. See PDFNetAndroidXamarinSample for detailed implementation changes.
  • PdfViewCtrlTabHostFragment now comes with option to not use the activity's SupportActionBar, this is useful if you would like to show multiple viewers side by side. This is particularly useful in Xamarin.Forms where the base class in Xamarin.Forms already has a Toolbar.
  • AnnotationToolbar now comes with APIs to remove the close, pan and overflow button, as well as APIs to change the default annotation tool grouping, see tutorial here: AnnotationToolbar
  • android:usesCleartextTraffic="true" flag is now required in your AndroidManifest.xml if you are targeting Android SDK version 28+ and using PDFViewCtrl.OpenUrlAsync with HTTP links. See tutorial here: quick start.

linkDependency changes

  • Tools package now uses dependency io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxjava and io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxandroid

linkXamarin.iOS

linkNew features

  • Adds a reflow control, which converts the displayed PDF to HTML text suitable for viewing on a small device. The original PDF font and text styling (relative font sizes, bolding, etc.) is preserved, and text annotations (highlights, underlines, etc.) are visible.
  • The drop-in complete reader components PTDocumentViewController and PTTabbedDocumentViewController now support opening and streaming documents from online (http) URLs. See the Open from online URL guide for more information.
  • Opening documents from online URLs will now optionally only download content which the viewer is displaying. This will result in data transfer savings when viewing documents over a cellular/mobile connection. See the Restrict data usage guide.
  • The ToolManager includes a Readonly flag to quickly disable annotation creation and editing.
  • The PTTabbedDocumentViewController now provides improved access to PTDocumentViewController APIs for better control over its behaviour.
