    Qt does not have any UI widgets for displaying PDF files.

    There is a third-party library (Poppler) which you might be able to use. Unfortunately it is linux-only and is GPL-licensed, which means it cannot be used in a commercial closed-source product.

    There is a Qt Labs project, QtPdf but this is not part of the regular Qt distribution and you will have to build it from source code. It is being considered for inclusion in a future version of Qt (5.14 or later) as a "Tech Preview" module. It is not as mature as Poppler, but it does have a more permissive license.

    Thank you so much for your reply but i need to display the data in window like webview() where i can add button also to verify that loaded is correct or incorrect.
    I have seen somewhere that through qwebview we can display data in widget but in my case it does not work.

    I have read that there is a PDF.js library that allows PDF files to be displayed in browsers. I have no idea how to use this or if it will work with Qt's webview.
