This product allows you to make direct http requests to handler it exposes which is great.
With the help of these handlers you can get a thumbnail of a file.
The way that it currently works (in the .Net version, I don’t know about other platforms)
is that you send a request to the http handler (hosted on the same iis as the viewer’s website)
and you get back a list urls to a different handler (with different files identifiers) that returns the stream to the thumbnail.
With large pdf files (hundreds pages) the process freezes and the request times out.
Will there be a way to request only the thumbnail of the first page of pdf files in one of your future releases?
