Hi friends,

I need a component ( or a user control ) for .Net, to display PDF files in my WinForm application.

the component should contain these abilities:

- View PDF documents in WinForm
- Navigation via bookmarks
- Zooming and panning
- Select, copy and search text (full Unicode support)
- annotations such as Highlight ( text markup ), underline, sticky note, etc.
- ...

would you please name some good components ?

for example two website that I found:
http://www.o2sol.com/pdfview4net/overview.htm[^]
http://www.tallcomponents.com/pdfcontrols2.aspx[^]

I'll appreciate any help.
thanks.

Hey, you can check this PDF document reading SDK at RasterEdge, which offers the APIs to create a standard PDF viewer in WinForms application.

It supports most of your requirements, except the one to Navigation via bookmarks, it only provide thumbnail preview for page navigation.
