How to Use Foxit PDF SDK for Web Offline

Using PDF SDK for Web offline enables you to get the most out of our Web based JavaScript PDF viewer for your workflows. In order to use the SDK offline, please follow the following easy steps:

  1. Turn off your internet connection and visit https://webviewer-demo.foxitsoftware.com/examples/UIExtension/pwa/You will get a ‘no internet connection’ message on your screen.
  2. Next, re-connect your internet connection and visit https://webviewer-demo.foxitsoftware.com/examples/UIExtension/pwa/.
  3. After this, disable your internet connection and try again. You will be able to see the Web viewer and have full access to its functionality.

The only thing you won’t be able to load is the PDF file which is in the server. In order to get around this, you can load a file locally and work on it as if you are online.

You can build a series of workflows in the background and perform standard functions like retrieving form annotation data to your local file that re-enter when online and much more.
