var navigationController = new UINavigationController (pdfLayerViewController);

if (UserInterfaceIdiomIsPad)
    navigationController.ModalPresentationStyle = UIModalPresentationStyle.Popover;
    navigationController.PopoverPresentationController.BarButtonItem = layerButton;

this.PresentViewController (navigationController, true, null);
