Open PDF retrieved via odata service in SAPUI5
How can I show a PDF file retrieved via an ODATA service in to my SAPUI5 application? I have looked for some controls or api's but I can not find one in the SAPUI5 labrary. Also can not find any good information on the internet.
Can someone tell me a solution?
For our solution we had to display a PDF from the ADS, and therefore got this directly from a URL.
Therefore we used a HTML Object from the Core library, sorry did not ask with part of SAPUI5 you were using.
We then created a OBJECT or IFRAME tag inside this to display the PDF, and had that point at URL end point that returned just the PDF Object itself.
A quick example of this would be something like this, and then just add the oHTML Content to a Control like an Overlay or something like this.
//Create Place holder for the iFrame using a HTML Object
var oHTML = new sap.ui.core.HTML();
//Set the iFrame up to call the Form Controller passing in the Form Data so the
var oContent = '<iframe id="iframeContentPanel" ' + 'src="formGetController.do?' + formData + '"width="100%" height=600px'"></iframe>';
It's not the complete answer, but hopefully will help.
