Hello, all,

I'm trying to open PDF files from a URL link - open in READER, not the browser - and have Reader highlight keyword searches, and set the zoom to 100.

The PDFs are in many folders, but I'm currently using CFFILE to do a 'readBinary' of the PDF, then use CFHEADER and CFCONTENT to give the user the option to open in Reader.

<cffile action="readBinary" file=" { filename is in a url parameter } " variable="variables.thisPDF" />

<cfheader name="content-disposition" value="attachment; filename=fakePDFname.pdf##search=#url.parameter#&zoom=100" />

<cfcontent type="application/pdf" variable="#variables.thisPDF#" reset="yes" />

The parameters appear as part of the filename, not as parameters, and I get an error message that there are no programs on my computer that will open "fakePDFname_pdf_search=hazmat&zoom=100".

How can I get keywords to be highlighted within the PDF?

Much appreciated,

^_^

I know that this used to be possible.  But now it seems as though the browser plugins no longer support it.

I've got the PDFs opening in Reader (or whatever the user has the browser set to use.)  It will just append the parameters as part of the filename, and not open the file.

I can open within the browser using the plugin.  It will accept the 'zoom' attribute.  But does nothing with the 'search' attribute.
