Expanded Overview

An attachment is a file that is attached to a PDF document. The PDF Viewer displays the attachments in the Navigation Pane.


Use the PDF Document API to generate a PDF document and attach a file to it. For more information, refer to the How to: Attach a File to a Document example.

The Attachments panel can contain multiple attachments in any format (images, text files, PDF files, etc.).

Expanded Open an Attachment

Double-click the attached file or click Open file in its native application in the Attachments panel to open an attachment. Before you open an attachment, make sure that you installed an application that supports the corresponding file format.

When you open an attachment, the Security Warning message appears.

You can hide the Security Warning message box in the PdfViewer.FileAttachmentOpening event handler.

Expanded Save an attachment

Select the file and click Save attachment, as shown below, to save an attachment to your disk.

Specify the file attachment's location and the file name in the Save As dialog.
