I'm having a project form school for a inventory management system and I want to do something extra. The inventory management system is for spare parts for machines and I want to be able to see the the manuals(PDF files) for thous machines in the GUI but I have no idea how. I tried google for about an hour but nothing concrete.
Can you point me in some direction or give me some examples?
