I am trying to view / preview pdf file in the PBI desktop / service.
Till now I only succeed to open the pdf file (locate in my one drive business) in the web browser.
I made a table with URL of the file destenation - as describe in the following link.
Is it possible to view the PDF file in the PBI itself and not in other app (web browser)?
I tried to use custom visual StrippetsBrowser but not succeed 😞
Thanks in advanced,
The StrippetsBrowser visual is not suitable to view PDF file. In your scenario, I am afraid that you need to open the pdf file in the web browser via clicking the Hyperlinks in Power BI tables. Or you can consider to create your own custom visual.
@ravelezpI guess you have a field in a table which has path to the pdf file, if yes, select this field , go to modelling table and under data categorization, set it to web url. Now you will see this filed will become url in a table and on click of it will open the file.
I hope it answered you question.
