    Default PDF Document View

    I have a web application that uses report.Saveas to produce a number of PDF's and then appends them into a single PDF file which is held on the remote Application Server.

    I would like the user to then be presented with the "appended" PDF in their local copy of Acrobat Reader for printing / downloading as required.

    Any ideas, other than downloading on to the user's machine for them to open manually?

    You could create a button with Action Javascript on it to "Open an A5W web page or PDF document", hide the button using client side show/hide, and then in the AJAX callback that creates the appended PDFs, use {dialog.object}.buttonClick('YourHiddenButtonName).

    Thanks Jay but, as I see it, that would require saving the PDF filename first in to a record as the call is coming from a grid action button and not a UX (where I could readily save the generated filename in a hidden control).
    The PDF is on the server and not in the Web Project folder.
