Does Reader allow HTTP Buttons to execute? I want it to load a html document located on the web.

So there is a link in the PDF and you want Reader to go to that link?



Is this form being viewed inside of a browser?

Actually, its just a simple html document that has javascript to check the querystring for the Form version.



http:\\www.somewhere.com\version.html?version=1.01

Then to answer your quetion ...no you can't get to functions outside of Acrobat ....which Form version are you checking? There may be an internal function to get the information you want.

Hi Paul,



I am hardcoding the version # in the form and would like a button to open a browser window with a hard coded url:



http:\\www.somewhere.com\version.html?version=1.01



everytime I make a new version I will re hardcode the url.



Thanks,

Then you would have to open the HTML page in a browser, click on the link then have the browser load the Reader plugin and brin up the form.

OK I have a strange issue.



I can get this to work sometimes on Reader 8



I have an HTTPButton that opens a html document located on the net.

Sometimes it opens in the Reader screen (which loads the html) and sometimes it tries to launch an IE Broswer (which doesnt load the html)



Im not sure if I am geting false hope here.
