Has anyone been able to get the cfdocument tag to open in a frameset?  See below code for example...

The terms_pdf.cfm was to open a pdf.  The page works fine, until I drop it into a frame and it fails.

If this isn't going to work anyone else have a suggestion how to display this? Can only the pdf be displayed?
<frameset col="30%,*">
<frame src="parmenu.cfm" />
<cfif session.type eq 't' >
<frame src="terms_pdf.cfm" />
<cfelseif session.type eq 'a'>
<frame src="account_pdf.cfm" />
</cfif> 
 
 
 
</frameset>

Have you tried iframes?  You should be able to display HTML as well as your PDF.  I haven't tested that recently, but I recall building a PDF viewer a while back and we used iframes to do the job.

Just a regular HTML page and add:

<cfif session.type eq 't' >
<iframe src="terms_pdf.cfm" />
<cfelseif session.type eq 'a'>
<iframe src="account_pdf.cfm" />
</cfif>

Try it and see if it works.  You may have to define the size and style of the iframe to get what you want.
