how to open a .PDF document in same window ?

Discussion in 'JavaScript' started by eonelite, Jun 20, 2008.

    I need help, I have a .PDF document and when a user clicks the link, I want it to open in the same window, not a new browser window, it shouldn't use the whole browser window, only specific width and height. Anyone know a code or something...

    Appreciate it !

    You can use iframe to open the pdf file, when mouse click set src of iframe to pdf file.

    It would be something like bellow:
    
    <iframe id="myFrame" style="display:none" width="500" height="300"></iframe>
    
    <input type="button" value="Open PDF" onclick = "openPdf()"/>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
      function openPdf()
      {
         var omyFrame = document.getElementById("myFrame");
         omyFrame.style.display="block";
         omyFrame.src = "myFile.pdf";
      }
    </script>

    Just make sure there's an option to download the PDF instead of forcing the crappy browser UI to try and get around it. There's a REASON I disable the PDF plugin for browsers as PDF's opening in a browser just pisses me off as a user.

    That said, sounds like you want an OBJECT tag, or if you give a flying purple fish about "standards" use an iframe.
