I want to know if widget is available for pdf viewer and any image uploader widget in Thingworx. If not how to do the same.
You can upload any files from a client machine to Thingworx using the File Upload widget.
For viewing PDFs you can do it if your browser can show it, you can use a Webframe widget or open the PDF in a new Browser.
Not sure if this would fit your use case.
Hi Chung ,
Thanks for reply.
I wanted to know like supp. i uploaded a pdf using file uploader widget and it got stored in ThinkworkStorage so how i can link it to webframe.
Same scenario in case of image, i uploaded a image using file uploader widget and wanted to show the the image in image widget dynamically. As to image widget we can bind only media entity and i can't able find any sniplet to create a media entity in js. Can you help me in both cases.

Hi Pai…which method are you referring to? The only thing I see is ‘GetFileWithLinks’, but that returns an InfoTable.
Sorry, still new to TW. Thanks for your help!
That is the service, that infotable that is returned shows all the files in the repository and an accompanying link to access the file.
Generally we use the concept of selected row to bind it to the webframe or image widget.
Or you must next filter the content to only return what you need.
As a rule, all services that are invoked by a user should be 'wrapped' services that leverage the base services the platform provides.
The problem is if you bind a link or bind a link String to Image widget's SourceURL value, Image will still not show.because Image widget auto append "&__rnd=xxx" string into image url. What's the problem!!!

I created a simple example of the "uploader" mashup. Sorry, I couldn't find how I can upload it here, so I put it in my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gy2fx891r1otgku/Mashups_Uploader.xml?dl=1
