    You may take a look at below blog, using regular hyperlink to navigate within the PivotViewer collection that you are viewing:

    Or you can try SilverDox: The FileBrowser sample implements a thumbnail-based file browser to load different documents into a ReaderControl. http://www.pdftron.com/silverdox/samplecode.html

  • Hi Haixia Xie,

    Much appreciate your response. I have now implemented the thumbnail preview for the documents uploaded to SharePoint Document libraries using the post http://blog.xvanneste.com/Lists/Billets/Post.aspx?ID=51 and PivotViewer.

    But in my requirement, I am lookig to display the Folder(created in any SP Doc library) with Thumbnail Preview. The Thumbnail preview should show 1st document's content within this folder.

    Let me know if this is clear. Thank you
