PDF File Not Opening In Web Browser

I'm trying to open a PDF file in my web browser.  I get the open/save dialog box and when I click open it just open Adobe Acrobat Reader, it won't display in my browser.

If (file.Exists) Then
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", _
"attachment; filename=" + file.Name)
Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString())
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
End If
Thanks for the help

I also saw similar behavior when using acrobat 7. I opened a pdf file but it opened acrobat as a standalone application. After switching back to the browser, I saw that the pdf file was actually opened in the browser. Strange.

I have an app that streams dynamically generated PDFs using code I got from Crystal. It uses similar code to yours, but doesn't have the AddHeader calls you're using.


Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"

It looks like it isn't necessary to declare the file as an attachment if you want it to open directly in the browser.

that's correct. The attachment is used for returning data in your browser and popup an instance of the program to open the attachment with.

Well I got it working so for anybody that wants to know changing the line:

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + file.Name)
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=" + file.name)

Do this cause my program to go from the dialog of open or save to just opening straight into the browser.

WEB FORMS and datasetS (do I have to repeat the file definition in every web form?)
I am working on vb.net.I have a project with 35 web forms and an access file with 18 tables.Until now I have defined the oledbadapters in every form by dragging the tables from the server explorer tool box.This is not a good idea because every time that I make a change on the database design I have to drag the new definition on 35 web forms and I have to create the datasets again. This is boring and time consuming!The question is:WHAT CAN I DO TO HAVE THE FILE DEFINITION ONLY IN ONE PLACE AND THAT EVERY WEB FORM WOULD TAKE THE DATA ADAPTERS AND DATASETS FROM THERE? how about if you write a...

Open web page in IE and populate fields on the form from my web form
To the dot net Knights.  Many humble thanks in advance from a dot net surf. We have an vb application that opens multiple instances of IE object, each to different web pages.  It then takes information from the current record in the app, populates fields on each of the web pages, and them submits the forms.  We are then able to look at the resulting web pages and quickly get the info we're looking for.This prevents us from having to manually navigate to each web site, enter the same information and then wait for the page to open.  If there is ...

How to Make Web Forms from other Web Forms
In putting together an ASP.NET application for a biz application, we have come to the point where there are three different types of basic forms which have, for the most part, been perfected. Now its is a matter of cloning those forms for various uses and modifying or adding code to suit the particular need. Copy and paste works OK, but there is a lot of changing of certain words, etc. Is there a way in ASP.NET to take these basic forms, turn them into classes or templates, create forms from them, then add or overwrite code? ? (Anybody who is a Vis Fox Pro programmer would know imme...
