Restrict document view using Viewer API in Java

Hi there,

I want to develop a .net MVC application with GroupDocs.Viewer integration, I need to render a document into browser with certains restrictions as restrict to print, avoid take screenshots and prevent to download.

I hope someone can help me with some examples to achieve with my requirements.


Using GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET, you would display the rendered document pages (in the form of HTML pages or images) in the browser, therefore, the end-user would not be able to download the original document. However, the API doesn’t provide the builtin print/screenshot restrictions and you would have to implement these by your own in your front end application. You can also explore our open-source document viewer application (.NET MVC) and modify/enhance it as per your requirements.
