I need to use open with dialog box to select adobe pdf reader. Is it possible to do? In code after open pdf file its not possible to edit. I need to trigger “file open with” dialog so end-user needs to select app.

    Thanks @Quintán
    I had found a another one. directly open acrobat reader.

        var url = new NSUrl($"com.adobe.adobe-reader://");

    Now i need to give file path to this. I tried but getting errors.

    var url = new NSUrl($"com.adobe.adobe-reader:{filepath}");
