I am using Acrobat Reader 10.1.0 which provide annotation facility. And I want to show PDF file in my C# application so that I can use this annotation facility.

For this I approaches two solutions:

1. Use Web Browser control (System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser), and it shows PDF file successfully in my C# application.

2. Acrobat PDF Reader COM component, and it also shows PDF file successfully in my C# application.

But the problem on both the solution is, I can't use annotation facility. As annotation is disabled when PDF opened in C#.NET application.

NOTE: Annotation facility is like, add your comments in PDF file, highlight some text in PDF file.

I suspect that the best (and probably only) way to do this is to not show the PDF in your app, but to open it in an external app - Acrobat Read 10 for example - and let it provide the annotation.

The other alternative is for you to implement annotations in your app and work out how to add them to the PDF file yourself - a fair amount of work, to duplicate something that exists.
