Hi Guys,


I have been looking for a way to create a pdf viewer within the database. All thats needed is a single button which will bring up the pdf files in a web viewer or separate window whereby you can view the whole document.


Here is the link to the resource I had found. Within the link is a demo file.


On opening and playing around with the demo file it worked great, the issue came to integrating the system. There are several scripting errors, I am unsure whether this is due to the use of plugins in the demo file (as I cannot see any mention of plugins used, therefore if they are I have no idea what plugins have been used).

Is there a way to find a workaround in the scripting, or even to develop this feature from scratch using vanilla FileMaker. Ideally we would not want to use plugins as our systems are not overly complex, all we need is a button to click and a new window or card to appear and display the PDF files (Stored externally by reference) and a way to view all pages in a file. Many thanks
