We have a PLC/HMI product that will run a shareware pdf reader called FoxIt. Does anyone know if there is a way to use a button in Visu that will open this reader, maybe to a specified document?
in which Visu type do you want to see this pdf viewer?
Internal Visu CODESYS , TargetVisu on the plc, Webvisu in the Browser ?
Good afternoon Edwin,
My apologies, I got away from this project for a while.
I am using the TargetVisu on the PLC.
I almost have it working - I can activate the PDF viewer. My only issue is that I can only specify a document to open that is in the same folder as the pdf viewer.
Is there a way, with the 2nd parameter when you activate a file, to specify a file path to the document to be opened?? I have attached a picture below.
Could you explain how you to open PDF on browser ? Which program you use to do this ?
Thank you very much.
Add the WebBrowser visu element
point to the url of the pdf.

Pdf are store on sd card of raspberry, not with url....
galexis how is the browser supposed to download the file and view it, if it is not available for the client to get it?
E.g. you have a pdf called "manual.pdf".
Put the pdf file into your $PlcLogic$/$visu$ folder.
You should then be able to download the file using http://localhost:8080/manual.pdf (or include it into your website as I-Campbell described two posts ago).
it work with:
- Put the pdf file into your: $PlcLogic$/$visu$ folder.
- Add button with internal command navigate to : 'http://ip_of_plc:8080/your_PDF.pdf '
Is it possible to link to a file that is stored on SD card ?
I have found out: The URL should be 'http://ip_of_plc/$$sdcard$$/your_PDF.pdf'
$$ because first $ works as escape character
