CF 6: How to display PDF file in HTML form
How am i going to display a PDF file into HTML format. Basically, instead of openning a PDF using adobe reader, i want to display it in a web browser. How am I going to do this? Can anyone give me an example?

As far as I know, you can't. When you see a PDF open inside a browser, it's using an embedded PDF plugin to display the PDF (either Reader or a built-in renderer like Chrome has, if I recall). So this is dependent on the user having the correct browser/plugin to display it. Otherwise it will just download the PDF file for the user to open however they want to.
