I'm searching a PDF sdk targeting .net core 3. This SDK should of course read/write pdfs (multiplatform) but also view/edit in a wpf (windows only) component All the sdk that i found don't have viewer/editor in wpf (.net core 3).

Do you have recommandations ? Thanks

  • Why is WPF+.NET Core 3 important? Since WPF is Windows specific why not use .NET Framework?

  • The goal is to develop a multiplatform app, We plan to get a Mac version (probably using Avalonia.UI) so we use .Net core 3.1 for this purpose.

  • So your plan is to do a Windows version in WPF, and then a second version in Avalonia? What about starting with Avalonia, and skip WPF?

  • because when we start the application, avalonia wasn't mature enough, and we use another toolkit only available on .net windows (because of C++/CLI) for now

  • Microsoft just announced .NET MAUI (Multi-platform App UI) yesterday. Looks like it will be Xamarin.Forms based, so you may want to read their article carefully and perhaps use Xamarin.Forms instead of WPF. "Xamarin.Forms developers will hit the ground running with new projects in .NET MAUI, using all the same controls and APIs they have grown to know and love." source: devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/…
