    AS 3.0 - using ExternalInterface.call to open a .pdf

    lk_chandler

      Hi - using Flash - AS 3.0:

       

      I am trying to use ExternalInterface.call to open a .pdf file - but it is not working - nothing is happening...

       

         ExternalInterface.call ("window.open","diagrams/v1/crh.pdf", "WindowName", params);

       

      but this line DOES work - call an .html file to open.
         ExternalInterface.call ("window.open","m5_quiz/v1/quiz.html", "WindowName", params);
        

       

      I can't find any information that says this should or shouldn't work - it seems to me it should open it.

       

      To get around this - I have been using 'navigateToURL' to open the pdf file - but that triggers the pop-up blocker - using the External Interface call does not.

       

      Any help/ideas?

       

      Thanks,

      Lisa
