I am a C# aspx programmer. I’m considering using your PDF component to present pdf docs on an aspx page to fill out, and sign. Can I use Aspose.PDF to detect if the user has a pdf viewer, and if not, present the document as html?
Thanks for your interest in our products.
Please note that Aspose.Pdf for .NET does not require any PDF viewing/manipulation application to be installed over system. However please note that Aspose.Pdf for .NET is PDF generation/manipulation component and it does not support the feature to display/view the PDF file but as per your requirement, you may consider loading the source PDF file in Document object (Aspose.Pdf.Document) and then save the file in Response object. This will render the file in user browser. Once the user has entered information, you can also get the information saved inside PDF document. Please visit the following link for further details on

You may also consider exporting the data of filled form in to XML or FDF format and then save the values of XML/FDF file.
