Display PDF in a Form, or something

Post by danvanf » Thu Sep 10, 2020 6:53 pm

Howdy,

First I have to say, this board is a great reference. :D Today I was thinking about displaying a PDF to the user. Is there anything in the API that would help facilitate that :?: If so, can I get a sample, please :?:

Thanks,
-Dan

Thanks for the complement. We work hard to provide answers quickly.

I have looked up all our topics on rendering documents via API and listed the How-To ones here. See if any of these are what you were thinking about. They are ways to programmatically generate documents.
If this is not what you meant, please provide more details about what you are trying to achieve.

Thanks for the research and links Bob. Prepare to laugh a bit. Well hopefully laugh.

As it turns out, I was imagining something that doesn't happen at all in Select. I was thinking that Select had a PDF display tool built in. :roll: It, of course, does not, Adobe Acrobat documents are opened in the default reader setup on the computer. Since my dream doesn't exist in real life, there's nothing for the API to do. :roll: :shock: :lol: :lol:
