PDF Preview

It allows users to easily select from the existing Media library, using uploaded PDF documents. Furthermore, the user can select which page in the PDF document to use for the preview. This comes in handy if, for example, you are linking to an exported PowerPoint deck, but want to show something other than the title slide.


The macro takes the following parameters:

  • Page Number - The number of the page in the PDF document that you want to show as preview
  • PDF File - The PDF file to preview (using Media Chooser)
  • Quality DPI (optional) - The default value is 18 (max) but can be set lower.
  • Link URL (optional) - By default the macro links to the selected PDF document. This can be overridden with any fully qualified URL (including "http://")
This package is based on Tall Components free PDF preview component.
Hope it can be of use to others as well!
