PDFjs Processing

By default, if no processing configuration is defined, the PDFViewer uses the PDF.js library.

PDF.js is an open-source project that is developed by Mozilla.


Add the PDF.js library scripts to the page.

Basic Configuration

The following example demonstrates how to configure the PDFViewer to use PDF.js processing.

    <script src=""></script>
        window.pdfjsLib.GlobalWorkerOptions.workerSrc = '';

        .PdfjsProcessing(pdf => pdf

For a complete example, refer to the following demo:

Browser Support

PDF.js processing is not supported in Internet Explorer 9. To work properly in that browser version, PDF.js requires additional configuration.

    // Specify the workerSrc property for Internet Explorer support.
    window.pdfjsLib.GlobalWorkerOptions.workerSrc = '';
