I need to create a project to upload pdf file to file server.

Before uploading, I want to add a button to preview it.

Is there any way to preview it (without adobe reader) or convert pdf to image file and then to view it?

RE: View pdf file without adobe reader

Why don't you want to use Adobe Reader to preview it?

RE: View pdf file without adobe reader

I use fileupload as below. How to complete to view pdf file when clicking btnPreview?

<td class="style3">
<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Photo upload" />
<td class="style4">
<asp:FileUpload runat="server" ID="PhotoUpload" />
<td class="style4">
<asp:Button runat="server" OnClick="btnPreview_Click" ID="btnPreview" Text="Preview" />
<td class="style1">
<asp:Image runat="server" ID="ImagePreview" Height="164px" Width="125px" />

You will have to preview the file before it is uploaded
