View Full Version : Is there a way to put a pdf viewer in a html doc

10-14-2007, 03:32 AM
I'm running a website that I'm using pdf's for guides and such is there a way instead of it opening in just a viewer but instead I can have it open in the layout so people can use the comment script i have on all my pages. I have seen people do it I just don't know how.
Thanks in advance.

You can try putting the location of your PDF file on your server in an iframe... that would be the simplest approach without getting any complex programming involved.

<iframe src="myfile.pdf" width="400" height="400">


Something like that. You can also make it have no scrollbars and stuff. I never got into iframes but it would make sense and be a practicle solution for using a PDF embedded into a page.

The following is shorter and should also work in older browsers that don't recognise iframes.

<img src="myfile.pdf" width="400" height="400">
