How to Open File in the browser without saving them ?



I am developing a web application for blackberry devices, currently we are targeting the following browsers on

Blackberry -

Default blackberry browser, Internet Explorer, Firefox.

There is an Open button on the page which should let the end user view the file on the browser itself, without asking them

to first save it on the device and then open it.


Our client wants that on click of open button, the prompt should come for asking the user to view the file

or the file should be opened directly without initially saving them first.


Kindly let me know how to do it.


Currently it is throwing the pop up screen for saving, then once saved , we have to click on it and then it opens that file.


Thanks and Regards.
