Hi,

I have uploaded some documents (pdf) at the Scribd (http://www.scribd.com/) They generate flash code/script for each upload (see below code). I want to embed these codes into my website. At present I am dedicating a full page for a single code. And in that sence I have to create 100 pages for 100 pdf files!!

I want a javascript or something which will allow me to show 100 pdf docs from scribd into one single page. User will be able to select the document and read from my site (http://indiangeekforum.info/ReadMeEN.html).

Please help.

Did you consider using iframe to show scribd code and drop down menu to select files?

try to put this code instead of yours for scribd part (notice I added Iframe around), and point your links directly to iscribd documents with target scribd (iframe name)
<iframe name="scribd" height="500" width="100%"><object codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" id="doc_349883993364249" name="doc_349883993364249" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" align="middle"	height="500" width="100%" >		<param name="movie"	value="http://d.scribd.com/ScribdViewer.swf?document_id=13108185&access_key=key-2h7m4iqsf9hsiamcke6p&page=1&version=1&viewMode="> 		<param name="quality" value="high"> 		<param name="play" value="true">		<param name="loop" value="true"> 		<param name="scale" value="showall">		<param name="wmode" value="opaque"> 		<param name="devicefont" value="false">		<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff"> 		<param name="menu" value="true">		<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"> 		<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"> 		<param name="salign" value="">    				<embed src="http://d.scribd.com/ScribdViewer.swf?document_id=13108185&access_key=key-2h7m4iqsf9hsiamcke6p&page=1&version=1&viewMode=" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" play="true" loop="true" scale="showall" wmode="opaque" devicefont="false" bgcolor="#ffffff" name="doc_349883993364249_object" menu="true" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" salign="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" align="middle"  height="500" width="100%"></embed>			</object></iframe></div>

suvmitra,

Instead of creating 100 instances of anything, you should be looking into using a server-side script (PHP) and a database to store all of the document info.

This will allow you to use two pages with two database queries and a repeating region to dynamically build a list of links.

>> I do not know php...is there anything we can do with javascript

I'm sure there is but you're not really adding any efficiency to the process using javascript.  PHP is not hard to learn and you are using Dreamweaver, so the Create Recordset and Repeat Region commands are built in wizards anyway.
