Viewing Word, PowerPoint & HTML files stored in SharePoint in Power Apps

In this demo I have developed a Power App that is able to display Word, PowerPoint Office documents as well as HTML files, converted to PDF documents on demand and displayed within the PDF Viewer control.

The functionality showcased in this demo is enabled using a single expression / formula for the Document property on a PDF Viewer control. No Power Automate flow. One line of code. Absolute nothing more. As simple as it gets!

Excited yet 😁?
