Currently I am using the standard way to embed an pdf to the browser, however, the built-in pdf viewer for my target browser is not working as expected. I would like to force (Chrome, Firefox and IE8 (if possible, but IE9+ is also ok)) to use the adobe reader. The problem is , I can only change this option manually. Is there any way to change the option in HTML/ JS/ PHP ? Thanks.
<OBJECT data="YourFile.pdf" TYPE="application/x-pdf" TITLE="SamplePdf" WIDTH=200 HEIGHT=100> <a href="YourFile.pdf">shree</a> </object>
I try to find the solution and someone suggested header, not working unfortunately e.g.
Content-Type: application/pdf Content-Disposition: inline; filename.pdf
I did this a while ago. Using JQuery was a great way to get round this :)
If you're willing to spend $6 I would highly suggest:
Hope this helps!
