  • Displaying a PDF file

    I am just learning to use the AutoPlay software, and while (with many hours of trial & error) I have figured-out how to set-up my desired pages & how to enable my end-user to jump between them... I have not determined how to display a PDF (adobe) file. What I want is to enable my end-user, upon clicking on a choice of icons/buttons/images/whatever... to view select different PDF files (and maybe to even print them). I guess part of my question is whether I should be using a "flash" object, or a "text" object, or something else? Or am I going about this the complete wrong way? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Hi Hopeful

    Your 'buttons' can consist of most anything. You need to use the File.Open Action in the button's OnClick event [or yur prefered choice].
    <font color=green>
    File.Open (open, "address\filename.pdf")
    </font color=green>
    Of course, the end-user must have Acrobat installed, lest you include it on the CD.
