I need to be able to take a pdf that is in a ByteArray and view that pdf in a Flex Mobile App.
The constraints of this are as follows:
-The PDF cannot be saved. It must be viewed from memory.
-The PDF cannot be sent from the device (ie. to a web service).

My research has led me to creating a StageWebView component. The issue with the StageWebView is that, although this works for viewing PDFs from a url, I need it to view the PDF not from a url, but from a byte array. The following URL shows where I was getting the StageWebView idea from:

Reminder, this needs to work using the Flex Mobile development, not the basic Desktop/AIR.

I am a fairly experienced C++ and C# developer but fairly new to the Adobe Flex framework so any help would be greatly appreciated.
