Load PDF without iframe

Which product are you using?
PDF.js Express Version

Detailed description of issue
I’m looking for a way to use PDF JS Express without embedding an iframe on the page. Our product allows the user to right-click on the page with our own custom actions added via a SDK script, and the iframe embed blocks the user from interacting in that way. I noticed that following the iframe src path renders the pdf directly on the page without the iframe, so I assume this is possible.

Is there a recommended way to use this component without creating an iframe?

Hello Mike,

Unfortunately the iframe is required at the moment, you can read more about it here: What is PDF.js Express? | Documentation

We are planning on removing the iframe requirement from WebViewer later this year.
