PRIM_PDF preview without saving first

Post by adale » Fri Nov 17, 2023 1:46 am

Working specifically in VL for the Web, we have historically used components based upon the demo DF_T69H10, etc. (print interface, print widget, print resource, print page). It had been recommended to look at the newer client side PRIM_PDF.
The biggest drawback I find with PRIM_PDF is that it does not provide a "Preview" option for the report as the older components offer.
You have to save the PDF, then you can open it.

Enhancement request is to build in a "Preview" feature, so the web user can view the report, then decide to print or save the PDF.
