Windows Store App PDF Rendering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am creating a simple windows 8.1 store demo app using c#-XAML in which I am rendering a pdf file on a button click to VirtualSurfaceImageSource  and then assigning it to the image using the code provided at below link,
    https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/PDF-viewer-showcase-sample-39ced1e8 .

    It does work fine  but for the pdf which contains high graphics and  when zoom factor is greater, app gets freezed and/or crashes. 

    I checked same PDF in "PDF-viewer-showcase-sample" and it crashes there too.

    What is the problem and how to resolve it?
    Is there any better way to handle the high graphic pdfs?

    Thank You.

  • Hi Tanvi03,

    I used a pdf contains some high graphics to test with the “PDF-viewer-showcase-sample” project, but it didn’t produce the same error. So I cannot reproduce your problem. Can you share your pdf? Please use your OneDrive and give me a link.
