Split the PDF into 5, 6, … 10 parts and load them one after the other. After downloading the first part, display it while the rest are downloading in the background.


Can you elaborate more… because I have same issue

thanx for reply,
can you provide any example?

Search in comunnity about This subject ok ?

I can not find such documentation (split pdf) in community…If someone can provide any related link,that will be helpful

is it possible, to compress pdf file before you show? internet have online pdf compressors.

Still it will compress it about 70 mb to 25-30 mb…and also will reduce its quality…
And as user mentioned,she is making newspaper app.so user will need to zoom it and read it …it must having good quality

Because user will only click once

If the user / reader has reached / read the end of the first PDF part, for example show a button to the new PDF file (part 2) and so on …
