You MUST show the Acrobat toolbar. It's not an option, it's part of the plugin. No toolbar, no PDF.

well, the user has to have a plugin for his/her browser, now if that plugin has an option of hiding toolbar, very good. but as far as i know, that option isn't there. i maybe wrong as i dont think i have the latest plugin.

I tried some thins and this is what I found:

<OBJECT id=PDF height=450 width=450 classid="clsid:CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000">
     <PARAM NAME="SRC" VALUE="mainpage.pdf">
</OBJECT>
<script language=javascript>
alert('test')
PDF.setShowToolbar(false)
</script>

The weird thing is that if I leave out the alert('test') the PDF.setShowToolbar(false) isn't working.

METHODS:

PDF.AboutBox
PDF.goBackwardStack
PDF.goForwardStack
PDF.gotoFirstPage
PDF.gotoLastPage
PDF.gotoNextPage
PDF.gotoPreviousPage
PDF.LoadFile
PDF.Print
PDF.printAll
PDF.printAllFit
PDF.printPages
PDF.printPagesFit
PDF.printWithDialog
PDF.setCurrentPage
PDF.setLayoutMode
PDF.setNamedDest
PDF.setPageMode
PDF.setShowScrollbars
PDF.setShowToolbar
PDF.setView
PDF.setViewRect
PDF.setViewScroll
PDF.setZoom
PDF.setZoomScroll

PROPERTIES:
PDF.src

There should be some more information on the adobe website in the acrobat sdk but I couldn't find anything.

you are missing the semi-colon in your JavaScript.  That's probably why.  I'll try that, if it works I'll increase your points.  Thanks.

I would be very surprised if that would work correctly for everybody... and I doubt if you'll be able to DO anything with the PDF. Like move from one page to the next... which is a pretty important thing to be able to do.

But I'd be happy to be proved wrong. Try it, see what the limitations are. I'm sure there are some.
