I am trying to create a button that, when pressed, will open
a pdf file. I have scripted the button as follows
on mouse up me
I have the flyer.pdf file in the root folder, but when I
publish the movie and try to test it, on a mac using OS X, it trys
to open clasic (I want it to open in OS X or higher), and on a PC,
it does nothing. One thing I noticed is that when the CD is put
into a PC, it drops the .pdf extention. What am I doing wrong? How
can I get this file to open on both a PC and a mac? If it is
something simple, can you write me a script that I can copy a paste
that will work? Thanks so much.
To open a file that needs another application, you need to
what application to use. You can test to see what
applications the user
has that will show a .pdf and use the path to that file, or,
install acrobat reader for each platform on your CD and then
or, you can use an Xtra that will find the application and
open the file.
