How do I keep the pdf from asking the user if they want to save the file when I close the document?I have used "event.target.dirty = false; " in just about any event that might make sense.What am I missing?

Is there any way to directly open non-pdf docs from a XPD pdf WITHOUT using a web browser? I have tried app.openDoc but it only seems to work on PDFs.Basically my PDF forms must be able to direct users to the locally stored document and trigger windows to open the file with the appropriate program. This is equivalent to the "Open File" link type in standard PDFs.I can use trusted functions if necessary.Any ideas?

I found the answer. radzmar was partially right. It did use app.openDoc but required a trusted function and an extra command:var mydoc = app.openDoc(path);mydoc.pageNum = page;

I need to open this in adobe standard NOT a web browser so the user can make edits to the target document. LaunchURL won't work. Is there anything like that to launch local files?

Hello,I am trying to create a button in my XDP form that will function as a standard "Open Page" link in a typical PDF. I want to be able to define the file path and the page number of a PDF and open the document in a new window to that page.The target documents are provided by a third party and I have no ability to dictate format or anything else.Any ideas?

I am developing a form that requires POST messages to be sent to my server yet every time I send a POST message the pdf opens a new document with the results of the POST. Since there are no results this is unnecessary.How do I suppress the creation of this server response document?
