Display PDF in assets folder (inside APK)

The example "Display PDF using PdfRenderer" show how to display PDF stored in sdcard, this example show how to display PDF stored in assets inside APK.


First, you have to create assets folder and copy your PDF into it.


Then you have to edit aaptOptions in build.gradle (Module: app), not to compass "pdf" file.


    aaptOptions {
        noCompress "pdf"
    }

Layout file, refer to the example "Create PDF using PdfDocument".

MainActivity.java
package com.blogspot.android_er.androidpdf;

import android.content.res.AssetFileDescriptor;
import android.content.res.AssetManager;
import android.graphics.Bitmap;
import android.graphics.pdf.PdfRenderer;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.ParcelFileDescriptor;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.widget.Toast;

import java.io.IOException;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    ImageView pdfView;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        pdfView = (ImageView)findViewById(R.id.pdfview);

        try {
            openPDF();
        } catch (IOException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
            Toast.makeText(this,
                    "Something Wrong: " + e.toString(),
                    Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        }
    }

    private void openPDF() throws IOException {

        //open file in assets

        AssetManager assetManager = getAssets();
        AssetFileDescriptor assetFileDescriptor = 
                assetManager.openFd("test.pdf");
        ParcelFileDescriptor fileDescriptor = 
                assetFileDescriptor.getParcelFileDescriptor();

        //open file from sdcard
        /*
        String targetPdf = "/sdcard/test.pdf";
        File file = new File(targetPdf);

        ParcelFileDescriptor fileDescriptor = null;
        fileDescriptor = ParcelFileDescriptor.open(
                file, ParcelFileDescriptor.MODE_READ_ONLY);
        */

        //min. API Level 21
        PdfRenderer pdfRenderer = null;
        pdfRenderer = new PdfRenderer(fileDescriptor);

        final int pageCount = pdfRenderer.getPageCount();
        Toast.makeText(this,
                "pageCount = " + pageCount,
                Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

        //Display page 0
        PdfRenderer.Page rendererPage = pdfRenderer.openPage(1);
        int rendererPageWidth = rendererPage.getWidth();
        int rendererPageHeight = rendererPage.getHeight();
        Bitmap bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(
                rendererPageWidth,
                rendererPageHeight,
                Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
        rendererPage.render(bitmap, null, null,
                PdfRenderer.Page.RENDER_MODE_FOR_DISPLAY);

        pdfView.setImageBitmap(bitmap);
        rendererPage.close();

        pdfRenderer.close();

        assetFileDescriptor.close();
    }
}
