    fscommand

    fscommand can only be used with flash projector files, and remember, when you use fscommand, the files must be in a folder under the flash projector file called "fscommand", the best wya to do this is not to batch the file but top write a small visual basic file that uses shellexecute to open the pdf, thats how i did it for one of my projects

    procedure

    ok, what you need to do, is for your button, use the code

    Code:
    on (release) {
        fscommand ("exec", "openpdf.exe");
    }
    then, you need to get yourself a copy of visual basic, and then in that you need to open a new porject, standard exe, double click on the form, which is like the main thing on the screen so it goes to the code, then put this there

    Code:
    Call Shell("URL OF FILE ON COMPUTER")
    End
    then on the form options on the right, you need to find form visibility and turn it to false. then export this file as opendpdf.exe and place it in a folder called "FScommand" that is in the same directory as your flash projector file.

    your other option is to use a .bat file. to do this you open notepad and type the following:

    Code:
    @echo off
    start pdfname.pdf
    exit
    then click save as and save it as what ever, say openpdf.bat, and there you have that, place that file in the "FScommand" folder, along with your pdf and the flash projector above that folder, and it will open it. if you use the bat just change your flash button from openpdf.exe to openpdf.bat

    any more questions and id be happy to answer them

    First of all, you cannot open PDF in Flash area.

    If you're on the web and you want to open a PDF file, follow the code given by ADMEDIA.

    If you've got a projector, read and follow the instructions given by SIMPLEMODERN. All you need is a batch file for this.

    this works except....
    on(release){
    getURL("mypdf.pdf", "_blank");
    }


    when I click the button, it opens the window that gives the user the opportunity to save, but it opens this 'option' window 3 times when I'm only clicking the button once. Any idea why this is happening??

    Why not Convert the pdf to flash?
    I think it's easier and no coding part is necessary. This PDF to Flash converter can be a good choice.

    hope this would help.

    May this work out in Flash: on(release){getURL("mypdf.pdf", "_blank");}. But, I insist on Converting PDF to Flash through software way if you don't mind. I recommend a free online converter
    PDF to Flash Converter, Click "Free convert now" button at this page.
