Opening File

Jul 9, 2007 3:31 AM

I have a list of documents displayed in a grid and want to be able to open the files (which are stored on the webserver). The files have different file types.
Any help on doing this will be appreciated

    When you refer to a file, do you mean and PDF, Doc files etc?

    If so are they linked to a DB?

    Can't you put the file extension in the DB as another column? Then when you do the initial query of the files, send the extension column as well. You don't have to display the extensions in the grid, but the grid will hold the information none the less for each file. So when you click the file, merely append the extension on for it.

    IE something like

    In the grid's onChange() event handler:

    filename = MyGrid.selectedItem.FileName + "." + MyGrid.selectedItem.Extension;

    The syntax might vary depending on scripting language you are using in your particular code.
