    Hi all

    In my split view based app, left panel contains list of files (doc, docx, ppt, xls,rtf, java,pdf, c, image file,etc..) and on tapping on either, i want to get it displayed on right panel of split view.

    Can I proceed with UIWebview or is there any other better approach? And will UIWebview be able to display files of all type (standard file type only).

    UIWebView will display most or all of the file types you show. Not sure what it does with source code files though. Better depends on your real needs. It's certainly the simplest and will work for most files of the sort you show. It's possible that for very large files there are other ways to display the files that are "better" for some definition of "better." Any other way will be "much" more work.
