Accessing a PDF file
Is it possible to access and read a PDF file from within a FM Pro Advance runtime. If so, how can it be done?
What do you mean by "read"? Runtimes cannot create PDF's from save as PDF, but you can by printing using either the PDF option (Mac) or a PDF creator (windows).
PDF files stored in container fields can be opened as a separate file via Export Field Contents or displayed in a web viewer. Open URL can also open a PDF file.
