I have the exact path of the PDF file I want to open...I simply want to open it up in a new window...I want to do it from my click event
What is the best way to do it?  I was trying this but never got the syntax right to pass the pdf file to the script code... If the code below is the best way...how do I pass the page parameter in the line? Instead of it being hardcoded as 'YOURPAGE.pdf'?
Response.Write("<script type='text/javascript'>detailedresults=window.open('YOURPAGE.pdf');</script>")

I really don't want to add alot of javascript if there is another way.

Add this code in your click event
string pdfFile = "YOURPAGE.pdf";
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "openpdf", "window.open('" + pdfFile + "');", true);

Open in new window

I tried it...I get 'Access is denied'...testing on my local laptop...do I need to set some security on the directory the file is in? maybe an IIS security issue?
