Open a PDF file stored on a table

Open a PDF file stored on a table

Good morning all!

I have an application that saves PDF files on a table - the attribute is image type.
I need to see or view or open the documents that was saved. I am using an OLE_WEB object to open it but it's not working ok.....
Any suggestions??? hourglass
Thanks in advance...

RE: Open a PDF file stored on a table


I found a way that worked ok...

ll_iddoc = dw_sheet.GetItemNumber(row,"nrseq")
LS_DOC = "c:\temp_foto\" + string(ll_iddoc) + ".pdf"

inet iinet_base
GetContextService("Internet", iinet_base)

BUT it opens the browser to show the PDF file.....

It works but I need the file to be opened from inside the PowerBuilder....

Still searching....
