Working with Commands in WPF Pdf Viewer

Magnification operations:

The PdfViewerControl provides the following set of commands to perform magnification.

NOTE

  • When executing the IncreaseZoomCommand, the 25% of zoom value has been increased from the current zoom percentage.
  • When executing the DecreaseZoomCommand, the 25% of zoom value has been decreased from the current zoom percentage.

The following XAML code shows how to bind the IncreaseZoomCommand to a button.
