Hi
I am using the following code to open a pdf file in a new browser
It opens at 143%
How do  get it to rather open at 100%

 Try
            Response.Clear()
            Dim filePath As String = "~/Resources/GREAT.pdf"
            Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
            Response.WriteFile(filePath)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Response.Write(ex.Message)
        End Try

Going by the documentation, it looks you should be able to use the parameter zoom. Try appending that to your URL:

e.g.

Dim filePath As String = "~/Resources/GREAT.pdf#zoom=100"

It may just be the way you have your PDF viewer configured, and not a problem with the file itself at all.  I'd look into it.
