Director MX 2004 .pdf Problem

Hi There

I am currently trying to allow one of my cast members to link to a external .pdf file and allow it to open using acrobat or other relative pdf software installed on the machine. How would I go about doing this and thanks also if you could include the exact code necessary as well as program I would really appreciate it a full step by step is essential I dont mind paying for necessary software if essential.

Many Thanks!

Use the BuddyAPI xtra from:

(it's free if you only use 2 of it's functions)

Use the xtra's baOpenFile function:

result = baOpenFile("C:\document.pdf" , "Maximised")

More info is included with the xtra.

Hope this helps,
