How can I access the ViewerControl in the PrizmDoc samples?


Normally, when I create a viewer in my own application, I do:

viewer = $("#some-div").pccViewer({ ...options });

Then I can make calls like:"Some search term.");

But in the legacy samples the Viewer isn’t set to a global variable. How can I access the viewerControl object?


If you call $("#some-div").pccViewer(); without any arguments, it will access the existing Viewer in the relevant <div> instead of creating a new one. For example, in the WebForms sample, var viewer = $("#viewer1").pccViewer(); will create a reference to the sample’s existing Viewer.
