    Hello there,

    I want to use the GrapeCity Documents PDF Viewer for a Vue.js application. I have gotten the interface setup and the Documents PDF Viewer is working but I am having some trouble enabling the full functionalities.

    I requested the 30-day Evaluation license which has been given, but I still have some confusion and I have not been able to find the right documentation to explain them.

    1. How do I get the apiUrl endpoint for supportApi?

    I have been able to download the WebApi project following one of the blog posts that I came across but I have not been able to run the project as it contains no installation guides or README and I do not know much about C# or dotnet. Can you please share a link to any docs that explains how to run it?

    1. After setting up the WebApi project, how do I generate a token that should be used for the

      field? ( I got three credentials from

    2. Is there a way to use the full functionality of the PDF Viewer without having to set up the WebAPI project? (Probably through a cloud hosting managed by GrapeCity)

    It’d be really great if there was a detailed quick start guide that explains all of these for new users.

    1. For this, you need to create the WebAPI inherited from the GcPdfViewerController. The API URL would be “api/pdf-viewer” with the hostname as a prefix.

    2. To configure the WebApi, please refer to the following documentation: Configure PDF Editor | Documents for PDF .NET Edition

    3. There is no feature like this. We provide the complete WebApi project and by hosting this on the server the API URL can be fetched from 1 and can be used.
