    open pdf

      Hi,

      I am new to Flash, and have read other posts regarding this, but do not understand. I have a flash movie embedded in a webpage. The button, upon release, is suppose to open a pdf file, not in a browser window. How does one do that?

      Thank you so much for considering this.
      Sincerely,
      Hope

          if you uploaded the pdf on your server, and linked the button to blahblah.pdf, it automatically prompts for download

            Dear dzedward,

            Thank you for this quick reply. Before this nice reply I did that. And when i did a 'test movie', it opens 2 blank browser windows, the folder the .fla is in locally, plus downloading the pdf....oh, brother.....(-:

            Since your reply, I uploaded the movie in the webpage and tested it online and it works perfectly. Thank you so much. I guess testing without uploading does not work with in the 'test movie' mode.

            Thank you again so, so much. I really appreciate it.
            Sincerely, and have nice day...
            Hope

              I did the 'get url' and used the absolute address for the pdf file. Does that seem right?
