Ok.... I think it's working now. When I click the link going directly to the PHP
script, it's displaying the PDF file in the browser appropriately. Exactly what I want.
Now.... some of these PDF docs are so big, they could take a while to show up if a
client is on a slow connection. So now I want to make a 'middle' page that says
something like 'dowloading... please be patient' while the PDF is downloading. So
here's what I've done.
The file getpdf1.php is the following:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=getapdf2.php">
Please be patient... downloading
$file = fopen("../pdfs/whatever.pdf",rb);
(Thanks to James for this little bit of code)
Now... if I link directly to getpdf2.php, it works great. However if I link to
getpdf1.php, which redirects to getpdf2.php, IE show the download file dialog. This is
NOT what I want, why is this? Weird.
