Topic: Re: javascript for open file

The Acrobat JavaScript Object Specification is pretty clear with the
openDoc() app object method. It says that it has been introduced with
Acrobat 5.

The getURL() Doc object method will open a web browser under Reader,
and it may or may not open the other document in a new Reader window;
most likely, it will open it in a browser window (depending on the
Reader/Browser configuration).

Hope, this can help.
