You need to be much more specific with your question then. Is this an ASP.Net, WPF, or WinForms? How are you opening the PDF now? Can you post your code?

You're using an <asp:Button>?  Set a "window.open()..." in the OnClientClick, or set a variable in code-behind to fire a client-side script.
<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<script runat="server">
	
	private string openPdf = String.Empty;

	private void pdfButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		openPdf = "true";
	}
</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
	<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
		function OnLoad() {
			if ("<%=openPdf %>" == "true")
				window.open("http://www.google.com");
		}
	</script>
</head>
<body onload="OnLoad()">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
		<asp:Button ID="pdfButton" runat="server" Text="Open PDF" OnClick="pdfButton_Click" />
    </form>
</body>
</html>
