In B4A you could use the below intent to view a PDF file. Would be nice to have the same functionality in B4i

Dim i As Intent 'Requires a reference to the Phone library
i.Initialize(i.ACTION_VIEW, "file://" & File.Combine(File.DirRootExternal , "data.pdf"))
i.SetType("application/pdf")
i.WrapAsIntentChooser("Choose PDF Viewer")
StartActivity(i)
Activity.Finish

Thanks,
Johan

Have you tried to just load the pdf to the WebView? I expect it to work:
B4X:
WebView1.LoadUrl("file://" & File.Combine(File.DirAssets, "yourpdf.pdf"))

Hi Erel,

When i try the above code, only a white screen appears.

Yes Erel. It does. I have attached the project. I feel i am doing some stupid mistake.

Erel,

We have the same issue. Our quirk is that it works great in debug but not in release. This is b4i, whether 1.x or 2.0. Any thoughts? Here is a file with the pertinent code.

Sorry, should have thought about doing that. Here it is. Running in debug works, but not in release.

Thanks,
Tm
