Re: Opening a .pdf file with ShellExecute posted by WAllison on May 21, 2002
: I am having problems opening a .pdf file with the ShellExecute command. The code is:
: : ShellExecute(Handle,'open',PChar'c:\data\gradesheets.pdf'),nil,nil,SW_SHOW);
: : but all that happens
when this is executed is the Adobe Acrobat splash screen appears and then closes, and the file is never
: : Any ideas on what I may be missing?
: Try it like this:
: ShellExecute(Handle, PChar('Open'), PChar('c:\data\gradesheets.pdf'),nil , PChar('c:\data'),
Thanks for the help.
It's weird, when I run it in debug mode it sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, but when I run it staight from the .exe it always works...
