Hi All,
I have an application that uses ASP.Net with VB.Net Cb along with SQL Server 2000.
I've successfully got blob pdf data storage and retrieval accomplished, but now a user wants to disable the save of pdf's when I stream them to the browser.  Is there anyway that this is possible?

Thanks a million!

    You cant control Acrobat PDF files from your program.! They have to be stored with No save option with adobe WRITER.

    besides. you cant control any third program besudes Internet Explorer froma pages.

    Thank you for the reply,

    Just to make sure.  These pdfs are being shown in internet explorer and the content type is being changed to application/pdf for the page when the binary content from a SQL database is streamed to the browser.  If direct control isn't an option, is there also no way to alter the binary content on the fly to establish the no save option or with activeX?

    Thanks for the response!

    The only way to control is is buying a third party component in which you can control PDFS as desirable.

    They can cost a lot
