Hi,

in agk Tier1 I use runapp to open (with acrobat reader) a pdf (test.pdf in media folder)
so my code is:

runapp("C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" ,"media\test.pdf")

and on pc it's all ok.

Now I want to make the same thing on Android , I know that runapp not working in android
and so I ask if there is another method or example code that make the same thing of runapp ?

thank you

On Android, just specify the .PDF file itself. When I did this, it was using PDF's downloaded from a HTTP site, so the PDF is stored locally in the media folder, then just specifying the name let me open it up on Android. You will need Adobe Reader installed of course, but it should work.
The code is dark and full of errors

The reason your code didn't work in Android (assuming that you didn't change the code posted), is because it uses a Window style path with the slashes the wrong way and with spaces in it and, most importantly, it explicitly specifies a Windows based program (which would not exist on an Android).

I think the command you are after is ViewFile(filename$)

From the help file....

Quote: "
Opens the given file in an the external application suitable for its file type. Typically this is a default app chosen by the user. The file should be in your read or write folder, you should provide the filename as if you were loading the file. Currently this only works on Windows, iOS, and Android. "


Obviously you will need Acrobat Reader installed on the device (or something else which can open .pdf files)

Hope that helps
