Title

Document Handling question

Post

I'd like my solution to allow the user to click (or double-click) on a document reference in a container field, and have the action print the document. Let's say the possible documents will always be Word or PDF files. I find that double-clicking on with type of file reference in a container field will load the associated application instead of directly print. Is there a way around this?

 

Right now I have a text field to the left of each container field. The user uses the text field to type in a label they want for the document in the container field to its right. I also have a button for the user to use to pick a document for the container field. So, the layout looks something like this:

 

TextField    ContainerField     Button

TextField    ContainerField     Button

TextField    ContainerField     Button

TextField    ContainerField     Button

 

which, when filled out by the user, might look like this:

 

Patient Intake Form     [intake.doc]

Patient Handout 1       [handout1.pdf]

Privacy Policy          [privacy.pdf]

 

etc.
