This example uses Active X to open and view a PDF document within a dialog box on the LabVIEW front panel.
Using this example, you can extend your user interface by embedding a PDF document in the front panel. The example VI has been configured to be a modal dialog window, which stays opened until the user presses a stop button.

Doesnt work, crashes on start up.
Me too. After Run, having an error: Control could not be loaded.
I either find any control or indicator named PDF Display. So, did my LabVIEW 2009 software lack anything or another reason? If you have any example about display HTML or PDF file on Front Panel, could you give me. Thank you so much!
Works fine as a standalone. However it does not work and generates error 3005 when run as a SubVI. Not sure why. Any ideas?
Have the same issue. It work again if you select "Insert ActiveX Object..." -> "Adobe PDF Reader" in the ActiveX on the front panel.
You need to run in "user interface" mode (VI Properties -> Execution -> Preferred Execution System).
It is work just fine. Thanks.
