HOT! Open External PDF in Adobe Reader

Avatar

15-09-2008

Hopefully someone will have some insight on a problem I having with a form I have created. I am using the line xfa.host.gotoURL to open an external PDF from the current PDF. When I use the form in Adobe Professional the funtion works great. I am able to open a PDF with no issues, but when I try to use the form in Reader the function does not work. Not even an error message. When I click the button I created...nothing happens.



I am getting some pressure from my higher-ups to finish this form today but this is the most important function of the form. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks,



Alex R. Ruiz

I'm having the same problem. Has there been any solution to get xfa.host.gotoURL() to work in Adobe Reader?

You can use:

app.openDoc(FilePath.rawValue);

to open another Adobe form.
