How parent win can know when a PDF file has finished loading in a child win?

Aug 24th, 2001 17:23
Juergen Thelen, Cathy Low,


Just embed the desired PDF file in your child document using
  <EMBED src="my.pdf" ... ></EMBED>
Most browsers will fire an LOAD event when the embed finished loading, 
so you can use the onLoad Handler in your childs <BODY> tag to call a 
function residing in your parent window, e.g.:
  <BODY onload="parent.ChildFinishedLoading()">
Hth, Juergen
