In above comment, there was some mistakes. Sorry!!!
I read PDF content as byte[] and then I use above method. It doesn’t work.
But for the image (png, bmp, jpeg) byet[], it works properly
Why it doesn’t work for PDF byte[].
FileOpenPicker filepickerOpen = new FileOpenPicker();
filepickerOpen.SuggestedStartLocation = PickerLocationId.PicturesLibrary;
filepickerOpen.ViewMode = PickerViewMode.Thumbnail;
StorageFile storage= await filepickerOpen.PickSingleFileAsync();

byte[] buffer = WindowsRuntimeBufferExtensions.ToArray(await FileIO.ReadBufferAsync(storage));
using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(buffer))
var ims = new InMemoryRandomAccessStream();
DataWriter dataWriter = new DataWriter(ims);
BitmapImage img = new BitmapImage();
ImageDocument.Source = img;

A PDF file is not a simple byte array, it is a structured file consisting of different content elements. Go to the Adobe website and get a copy of the PDF documentation for further information.
