Open file on the same site

Dear guys,
i am using WF-Download for my website, and everytime the user want to view the file, they need to download it.
is there any way or other module that i can use to just direct open the file without downloading?
e.g they want to view a .pdf file, when they click on the file name, the page will display the file.
please advice. thanks.

Re: Open file on the same site

Viewing pdf files at the user side is a question of this users his settings in the browser.
Mosttimes this will download pdf (or any other kind of non HTML stuff as eg doc, etc.) files.
There is no way to force the user to have it displayed in his browser window.
You can only be sure that it get displayed if you provide the content as HTML (eventually via a server side convertor).

Formulize let you setup some data tables, provides forms to fill in and can make reports with the tables.
Check it out.

Yes, Formulize will let you create a form, enter whatever data you want, and then search, sort, do calculations, and export the data. It's kind of like a CMS for data, instead of content. You can move on from simple, single forms, to joined datasets of multiple forms and all kinds of fun database-ish stuff, if you want/need to.

If you would like specific help setting anything up, finding the right feature (there are a lot of features/options), please feel free to post on our support forums on the http://www.freeformsolutions.ca/formulize website. I try to answer all messages as quickly as possible.
