Question: Choosing an application with OpenAttachmentWith (v7.2 SP1)Your last visit to this thread was on 1/1/1970 12:00:00 AM

Greetings! This is related to (but separate from) my InsertFileAttachmentEx question.

Immediately after inserting a newly generated PDF document as an attachment (sometimes) I open the attachment for the user so they can print it or review it, like this:

Using slx_App As New SalesLogix.SlxApplication
slx_App.BasicFunctions.OpenAttachmentWith(strAttachmentID)
End Using

When using this method, I immediately get a popup asking what application I want to open the file with (and Adobe PDF is automatically selected).

My question: How do I make it automatically use the installed Adobe PDF application instead of having it offer the user other options? Further, can I specify that it open with Adobe Reader (even if I have to manually install a version) instead of an application that might let them edit the PDF?

Instead of using OpenAttachmentWith use the VBScript shell to open it. It will automatically open with the default associated program. See more here: http://customerfx.com/pages/crmdeveloper/2004/02/10/how-to-execute-a-file-program-in-vbscript.aspx
