The easiest way is with the BudAPI xtra (www.mods.com.au/budapi), It
has a command called baOpenFile that will launch a file in the
application that it is associated with. So, if you have Acrobat reader
(or anything that is capable of reading pdfs), this command wil open it
BuddyAPI is free to use up to 2 functions.
Usually an xtra is involved, the buddyAPI xtra (free when you use only a
couple of different functions) can open the pdf file using acrobat, it
also has functions to verify that end user has acrobat installed.
(sorry I don't have the lingo handy, but it's commonly available)
the pdfXtra uses acrobat to render the pdf on the director stage
imprasario renders pdf in director without a helper application
In previous version of director (up to MX2004), there is way to open PDF file in stage of director.
1. First in the Cast member insert the activeX and put it into score.
2. then inbetween put the following script in frame script.
on prepareFrame me

3. It works.
But I need, why it is not working newer version of Director.
Please, help, me.
