Link and download a PDF

Dear all,

I'm a very newbie of this kind of development (had my first BB just yesterday).

 

I'm trying to make a (I supposed) simple test creating a htm page with a link to a PDF in order to check if it's possible to download it directly.

 

It just doesn't work.

I'm using the pre-installed browser.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Mark

Re: Link and download a PDF

This should work assuming you are running BlackBerry handheld software and BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 4.1+.  What browser are you using?  You can see this Options, (Advanced Options), Browser.

 

What happens when you try to open the pdf?  What error do you receive?

Hi Mark,

thanks! I guess I'd better go back to the basis and than return with some detailed infos Smiley Happy

 

Can u give me a clue about where to start? Do u suggest me to start learning from BB whitepapers? 

I'm only interested in browser development. 

 

 thanks again,

m.

Re: Link and download a PDF

This is the best place to start for BlackBerry Browser development.
