I've started building in Flash Bulder 4.5.1, and was looking to create a sort of PDF reader application, which is to say I want to embed a couple of PDFs into the application, and then have some sort of animation as you flick through the pages rather than using like an iFrame. I was wondering if there was a way to do this in Flex or whether I need to convert the PDF to an image format (or another format) to do it (Tried quickly PNG's which don't look great on a phone).
Any help or advice appreciated,
You can display them in a StageWebView or use images as you said.
Thanks for the update - are there any other ways at all? Would be great if I could create a way to interpret the PDF so that I could do searching, zooming in pictures... etc.
If you feel like it, you can study the PDF format specification:
Then you can load a PDF file as a ByteArray in your application and do whatever you want with it, knowing the format: rendering it, searching it, editing it...
