ShellExecuteA() will open anything, interactively.. if it exists, and 
there's a default "viewer" for it, it'll open.. just like when you 
double-click a file in Explorer..

Am I reading the below post correctly... "The pushbutton calls the form with
the embedded PDF.  The viewer can then read, print or save the article to
file"
Is it possible to open a PDF File using a Paradox form?  If so How??

Thanks
Kevin

In some software I developed which helps phsyicians write complex medication
orders, there is the ability for the user to view pdf's of medical articles
as evidence for the alogrithms I developed.
In the open method of a blank form I have the following code:

folderviewer.navigate2(getAliasPath("Coags")+"/AntiThromboticTherapy.pdf")
This works well. I have a button on the medication writing form Called "View
Evidence".
The pushbutton calls the form with the embedded PDF. The viewer can then
read, print  or save the article to file.
HOWEVER, when the form is closed, instead of coming back to the calling
form, it goes to a non paradox window such as a webbrowser or any other
running program which may be open. This will undoubtedly confuse the user.
I call the form with:
If not F.open(":Coags:AntiThromboticTherapyChestPDF.Fsl", WinstyleDefault,
0,0,15000,12000) then
errorshow("Could not open the form.")
   return
ENDIF
F.wait()
F.close()
Any suggestons?
Thanks,
Craig
