Hm, either you implement your own PDF reader using LV (essentially a parser for the file format "PDF") or you "simply" call a PDF Reader application programmatically.

 

Simply in quotation marks as you got to know the API of that reader application.....

Start here:

Unrelated, this comes up frequently enough (I seem to see PDF handling about once / week), I think NI should consider offering some native support for PDFs...

Is platform\browser.llb no longer shipping with LabVIEW? That has worked for years and years. I don't have access to LabVIEW right now.

It is right in vi.lib where it belongs in 2013

Unfortunatly, most of the PDF questions I have seen recently aren't simply "How do I launch another application in Windows" 🙂

 

Edit: What Jeff and Dennis were getting at in their own way is that you can easily launch adobe reader to display a pdf if that is your only goal.  See: http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/68A6F2A00872837E862576940059C142

 

I am also quite certain you could find an ActiveX object that would just display PDFs as well.

I played with it... there is an ActiveX control called AcroPDF that comes default with Adobe Reader.  It works fine inside of LabVIEW.
