Azure Storage Blob and Xamarin - will it hold / display pdf files?

kenthubkenthub Member

2 questions from an inexperienced programmer but I'm taking courses and learning as I go.

I've looked online for a few days now and I can't find where Azure Storage Blobs specify file types that it holds. I've uploaded PDFs to my storage account using the Azure File Storage Manager but I'm not sure Xamarin.Forms will display them.

I've used the tutorial to upload the monkey image to my blob successfully. It seems everything out there is to only upload images.

I've looked over the class to Azure storage in Microsofts .Net API trying to find something regarding files but no luck.

So my questions are:
1) Can Xamarin pull and display PDFs from Azure storage?
2) What documentation should I be looking at?

Thanks all!
